One of the things I would work on is getting him to hold his stick correctly, it's something that takes time to correct once they get used to doing it wrong. When they are young they tend to drag the puck beside them and hold their hands close to the body. Try to get him to keep the puck in front of him, hands away from the body
two hands on the stick, stick blade on the ice
, if he can learn that he will be way ahead of the game as a beginner.
Figure 8's around a pair of gloves with the puck on your stick is a great exercise at any age.
