He's had a lot of jump these last few games, always seems to do everything with enthusiasm.
Yep I remember he boarded Chara pretty good last year. I've never thought he needed to bulk up really, his skating clearly lets him get away with being smaller quite easily and he doesn't play afraid (ex. St. Louis vs Stapleton styles). He definitely needs to improve his awareness in the offensive zone though and learn to work the puck toward the net instead of always making the easy play of turning back.
