As a rookie skater, he's doing just fine to my eye. Just need a little bit more on offense.
I think assuming Schroeder is going to come out of the gate with offensive guns blazing early in his rookie season is setting him up for failure. I've seen the idea floated a few times, but I think he's a player who has been in this organization long enough to realize how to work his way to where he wants to be. He seems to recognize how to stick in the line-up for now, and I agree he'll take more chances as he solidifies himself.
