IMO he's still very raw offensively, and that may never come around. But IMO he's also one of the biggest reasons that Dumoulin was expendable. Dumo was the best shutdown dman in college hockey the past couple years. But Levi was right there among the best, if not the best, shutdown dmen in the OHL over that same time frame. I won't be all that surprised if it doesn't take him long at all to transition up to the NHL level given his skating, physical play, and defensive awareness.
And he can bust some heads too, which is always nice to have.
