What I didn't like, aside from his skating which DuckJet mentioned above, is he got visibly upset multiple times. Went offside once and slapped the puck around the boards, later went to the bench after a turnover and repeatedly slammed his stick on the bench, and other instances like that.

He seemed to be trying too hard and probably put a lot of pressure on himself last night, but I could see some of the tools that made him a 2nd rd pick. And he was playing RW, for those who care.
Yeah I noticed that too. He really seemed like he wanted to do everything he could to make a great impression and things like offsides pissed him off.

But I love his toolbox and frame. He's got good potential is Wisconsin develops him right.
