In short, yes. He is benefiting from playing with better linemates. However, he is also playing much better and therefore getting a lot more ice time. He is strong on his skates, has a good hockey IQ and knows the defensive side of the game which leads to more ice time and more chances.

I think he has 2nd/3rd line tweener upside. Maybe a center version of Korpikoski?
