I disagree with this line of thinking. He is going to have to learn to play a full season eventually so might as well get started now. He is in form and Noel should be taking advantage of this instead of handling him with kid gloves. You don't see Florida, Boston, or Edmonton doing the same thing with Hamilton, Huberdeau, and Schultz all of which have played the same amount of games the Scheifele has so far this year.
You play him and moniter the results, if he starts to get fatigued then you start cutting back his minutes.
