I don't think sending him back is of value.

However I do have some concerns not related to skill.

Any young player but more so D men take longer to learn and process the pro game. Patience will be required.
Main concern is the physical pounding D men take in this new age of no interference. It was actually easier to break in a less than physically mature player prior to the rule changes. Add in the compressed schedule of a game every other night and this kid is going to be subjected to beatings by grown men that he's never encountered before.

I can easily see him spending time in the press box out of self preservation over the next few months.
