He is not the only Bull who turns back and gets in trouble.I see it as a problem as well but if the forwards are changing or it is an aggressive forecheck or they are killing a penalty,etc. then the D has to either ice it or turn back and try to give himself options.It is an instant decision based on instinct,coaching and experience.Mistakes are made or sometimes you have to give credit to the other teams talent.I agree that experience is the answer but he is not getting enough ice time to develop a feel for the OHL game.
