Give him a pre season at that level at youll see much different results.

Jump from WHL to AHL is pretty big and even harder when doing it the end.
Ill never judge a player based on 9 game AHL stint like this
Well said. I'll be going to the marlies final home game so it'll be my first chance seeing him live. I've only seen a couple games but despite the few defensive lapses, his puck rushing ability seems to have translated well, although right now he's prefering to pass more rather than rush the puck which is the opposite of what I'd rather see him doing.
