Yeah... Uh, it's kind of a huge jump in level of competition from USHL to the AHL. Girgensons won't be hurt by being given the opportunity to learn the pro game at an easier position first. Once he gets that, then move him to center. It's not going to help him to throw him in over his head and wreck his confidence by asking him to do something he's not ready for (see: Adam, Luke centering a top NHL line), which is something putting him at center now could definitely do.
