The last time I had seen him in a full game, before yesterday, was at the U18-WJC. Since then I have only seen some highlights or small stretches of games in the WHL.
I think his skating has improved, but I think at this point it is better suited for the big ice, where he doesn't have to turn too tightly and make quick changes of direction, as much as he has to on the smaller surface.
Maybe that is why people who have seen im in the WHL are a little more critical of his skating.
Nevertheless he is a real gem for German hockey.
He and Dominik Kahun could become a very dynamic duo for the national team in years to come, if they are not too busy playing in the NHL, that is.
