Using your body is something that a lot of players need to learn how to do as they develop. It doesn't come as natural for some. For most of his life he probably has been able to get by due to his skating and footwork, beating players to pucks, etc. I'd expect him to play at least 2, most likely 3 years at Minnesota and a year or so in the AHL. He will get some great coaching along the way and will be at an elite program in Minnesota where he will definitely get stronger physically.
