It will come with time, but I don't think that he's NHL ready defensively.
If you watch Moose Jaw games, the puck is never in the defensive end when Riellys on the ice. Junior can not refine his defensive game because he is so much better than his opposition that hes never really challenged defensively. The best defensive attribute however, is his ability to strip players of the puck, its incredible how easy he makes it seem.
