I'm not sure if something changed for him mentally since being a dominant 15-year-old or what, but I have rarely seen such a scared player in the OHL. He'd literally wince before any slight contact. And he'd shield himself as soon as someone was within 5 feet. It was really sad to watch because it showed a mental state that was not conducive to this level of hockey. And that's not something that changes.
