Size shouldn't even be a concern.
It shouldn't, but I think it will. He looked flat out small out there and he was getting worked behind our net several times pretty hard. His skating saved him a few times, as did Lovejoy. But he's gonna struggle mightily against teams with a heavy forecheck at the NHL level.

And like i said, his lower body looks small as well. Regardless of specific stats, just looking at him on tv he's the smallest or 2nd smallest guy on the ice. Which isn't a good thing if youre not a forward. Rewatch the game or some highlights, its obvious when looking for it.
