When was the last time you watched him? He was shying away from hits in his brief pre-season stint with the Jets because he was a bit under 170lbs playing against seasoned pro players (albeit AHL level players primarily but their size is the point here). Since then he's played with an edge and was the target of a lot of ire in the OHL playoffs to the point that he was taken off the ice for a few shifts in the series against Ottawa, I believe.

His skating and balance are still a bit awkward but he's a lot faster than he looks and his positioning and sense makes up for it a lot of the time allowing him to get back. He's no slouch on a breakaway either but at his level of play there are some great defensemen who would put the best in the OHL to shame in speed.
