I've had my doubts about this kid for a couple years.
But two things no one can deny, he can shoot and he has heart.
If he can keep his feet moving, he could be effective. Can't get caught in positions where he will be overpowered below the goal line. He has to be evasive.
He lacks the lower body strength to be a more powerful skater and have better balance when being pushed around. And he lacks the upper body strength to push bigger players away.
Those things can improve with age. But right now he can't get caught. Keep moving.
