Strength isn't a problem, he has improved a lot over the course of the season and has learned how to handle opponents better. He's actually quite effective along the boards, winning puck battles more often then losing them (and that certainly wasn't the case in October).

The biggest issue, which has me worried is that he's really struggling to find chemistry with his teammates. It sort of looks like he's hiding out on the ice at times, not getting into the right spot and thus get very few passes for one timers which is his best offensive tool. One on one and when cycling the puck down low he really wants to challenge his opponents, but whenever his teammates has the puck set up in the offensive zone he often disappear. I think it has a lot to do with timing, in juniors it's much easier to get into position, at this level you don't have that much time.
