Maybe that is a problem when local leagues decline in quality. Talents will (sometimes) feel they can dominate as stars even when they don't have to work extra hard. Hope he matures so he understands it's time for a wake-up call and change of life.
Being pro is being hockey
He has good numbers,but he could do hell of a lot more! Maybe the work ethic is not even all that big of factor i most worry about his size hes 17 and still only 178cm(!!) thats not NHL size by any stretch of imagination.
If he wouldnt be getting tossed around like a pillow,i think he would dominate.
