Of course he could regress. But he was pretty dominant in the AHL and have progressed steadily every season and he have the physics, mentality and basic skills to at least be a bottom pairing d-man imo. If he also develops some offensive skills (better passing game, better skating) then he can move up. But I fail to see what it is that could happen that would keep him away from the NHL seeing as he have the size and the hockey sense for the league.
