I'd be a lot more concerned, if he were playing a perimeter game. The coaches will be working with him on his weaknesses.
20 AHL Games, 12 goals. Not bad at all, in fact, That's pretty friggen awesome for someone who just turned 20. He played 6 games as a 19yo in the AHL, and now 14 games this year as a 20yo.

2011-12 Bridgeport Sound Tigers AHL 6 3 1 4 4 4
2012-13 Bridgeport Sound Tigers AHL 14 9 8 17 12 1

21 points in 20 AHL games, how many players average a point a game in the AHL at 20 yo ? If he plays 70 games in the AHL this year, he's on pace for 45 goals. That's pretty amazing for a 20 yo.
