That's the problem. I'm OK with growing pains. They're natural, especially for a 20 year old. There's absolutely no need to rush the guy, and with the way the team has played the last 6 games those growing pains could easily turn into confidence issues. Dillon is older and playing with a ton of confidence so he's fine IMO. The transition isn't as difficult for the forwards IMO, and they've been building confidence.

There isn't a veteran D on the team right IMO that would be good for bringing Oleksiak along. They aren't going to break up Robidas and Dillon right now so that leaves Goligoski or Daley. Oleksiak isn't going to save the season by himself. If the team shoes up the D position it might make sense to bring him back ... the way it is now ... it's safer for him in the AHL.
