It's what he does with the puck; his puck skills/offensive traits are deceptively good- he's so responsible already, skates very well for a player of his size so you can see him being a 3rd line guy for sure. But you also see that he can do some things in the offensive zone that makes you think he can contribute at higher levels.
The trick will be to coax out and develop that offensive element- my fear is that he'll be pigeonholed into a checking role because of how he plays already. 3-4 years at BC, being "the guy" who is depended on to contribute offensively, etc. is what he needs.
