I don't think he's been having a disappointing year at all, he was coming from a pretty low level of competition, now he's stepping into NCAA hockey against better, older players, where plenty of good prospects struggle as rookies, and he's doing decently well. With that being said, he was considered a reach at 21 last year, if Calgary hadn't taken him there I don't know that any other team would have taken him in the 1st round. This draft is deeper than last year's, I'd guess he'd be a 2nd round pick, but who knows really. On a lot of 2013 mock drafts I've seen guys like Lazar, Hagg, Ristolainen, Gautheir, Rychel, Mantha, Fucale, Duclair, etc. being pegged as roughly 20th-30th overall picks, competition will be very tough this year to even make it into the 1st round.
