He looks fairly dominant physically (with and without puck) even with limited minutes he gets, but he was on a receiving end of one or two open ice hits that I didn't like (one of them was a blindside I believe). So he needs to adjust to these things, and jumping early to the small ice could be mistake I think. Also he is lanky guy and developing more balance, coordination and even strength won't hurt.
