The coaching staff want to improve his defensive side of the game, so he's getting big PK minutes and a shutdown role at ES.

He's developing nicely. Still makes the occasional boneheaded mistake, but in general he plays like a veteran.

The one thing I will say is that he seems to favor the safe play now instead of taking risks. I'm not sure if this is because the role he's playing or because he's scared he'll be scratched if he makes a mistake, but sometimes he plays TOO cautious.

But he's got all the tools to be a special player. He's developing as expected, slow and steady. Hopefully once he earns DeBoer's trust on the defensive side of the puck, he'll be allowed a little more leeway when it comes to moving the puck and creating offense.
