Good to hear he's using that reach, that to me could be even more important than the muscle. If he keeps opposition on the outside with positioning and reach he won't have to rely on making hits.

Now I want to know if he's taking a lot of stupid minors. That's also an area of concern for me.
Depends on your definition of stupid, haha. I think the kid has taken two, maybe three penalties all year that fall into the "lazy" bucket. I.e., tripping, holding, hooking, etc. The games I saw, he was in the box from dropping the mitts, or basically man-handling a guy around the crease. Those are the kinds of penalties I'm okay with from him.
