Probably. At the very least, his ice time would have been cut back that game, if he wasn't outright benched for a stretch. The very next game though, he'd probably be right back where he was. Boudreau seems pretty encouraging of young players too, so he'd probably do what he could to keep Vatanen's confidence up.
