Not old enough, it was either OHL or NHL.

He'll be fine, he's 19 and its his first year pro. Takes time to adjust, but he has all the tools to be a dominant player.

Also, part of the problem is he's playing on the wing where his skill set ins't utilized to the fullest. When he was playing in the middle earlier this year he was playing his best hockey.

I think with the offense struggling it's a good opportunity to move him into the middle with Gallagher and Pacioretty and move DD to the wing on the 3rd line.
