That's what he will have to do in the pros. Not to the extent of getting 2 assists a game, but to be a noticeable and tangible factor on the score sheet more often than not.
I don't know that he needs to get there that quickly. Martin St. Louis had 2 points in his first 13 games at age 23 and then 18 in 56 a year later. If he's able to hold his own even if the offense is marginal to start, he'll get more looks from AV. To me it's pretty clear that AV likes Schroeder.
