The 25 shots that he has in eight games are the most he has had in a month, and that includes 14 games in December where he only had 21 shots and 11 games in November where he had 24 shots.

Of his six goals in the last eight games:

three have come on the power play
one came on a breakaway
FIVE came from going to the net or being around the net

It's one good stretch in the A. Let him do it for another dozen games or so and then revisit the issue. I'd rather him stay there and learn some good habits than bring him back too early.
