For me to be comfortable with him sticking at 18, he'd have to be dominant and clearly ready to move on.
The stats may say that he is, but his level of play isn't there yet.

Regardless, he'll make an ill-advised drop pass the nobody or try to stickhandle at the blueline and turn the puck over, leading to him being on Lindy's ****list.
After that, things will take care of themselves.
he is playing junior hockey where he is far superior to most of the players, its tough to be focused all the time when you are so much better than majority of the league. Those things what you mentioned are not hard to correct. The things you need to ask are does he have the skill, speed and the physical ability, the answer is yes. I don't know if you have made it out to training camp but he has played a very "pro" style of game.
