Not with his current playing time. He's doing the most he possibly could out of 12 minutes a game.

But let's put 1,o PPG in perspective... He'd need six 2 points games followed by 24 games in which he averages at least a point per game.

Or, he would need to play at a 1,2PPG for the rest of the season, which is comparable to Malkin's and Ovechkin's career averages.

It just won't happen. However, next year, with a bigger role and barring a sophomore slump, I could see him flirt with the PPG, which would be amazing for a 19-20 years old kid.
