His skating is ugly but not ineffective. Hunched over and Alex Picard-esque, but only above the waist. I think his feet are actually fine. Exceptionally slippery for a big man, and excellent puck protection. I don't see his mobility as being incompatible for the NHL. Most goals are scored on highlight reel, break away rushes. I'm extremely impressed with this player and not at all worried about the long term effectiveness of his mobility.

He actually reminds me a bit of Blake Wheeler as a Freshman at Minnesota.
