Needs to improve his skating, plays in a market where not a lot of people see him, not a lot of hype for him. He's well deserving of the ranking he got from Central Scouting (8th among North American skaters) and ISS (16th overall). Not sure what you mean by what's holding him back in the rankings.

He plays a very North American friendly game which is part of what attracted him to come to Canada for his draft year and also had a lot to do with his ability to adjust quickly and start contributing right away. Uses his frame well to fight through traffic and get to the spots needed to make plays.
