Tatar played 9 NHL-games in his 2nd season after the draft, Ritola 2 games after two seasons in Sweden(same situation as Pulkkinen) and Hudler had 12 games in his first season in NA. That's just to name a few examples. But I'm not even sure if he'll be with the Griffins next year.
As Leehh mentioned, his defense and playmaking has improved considerably since he was drafted, and the only thing holding him back really is his skating. Hopefully they'll find him a good skating coach to work on his technique during this off-season, since it's not about lack of power anymore.
