As for the bolded, if the guy was burnt out then how would he be able to keep playing after the NHL season?

Just to clarify, I'm not dissappointed with the kid it's what I expected. But it's something we have to take with us going forward.
This. His play without the puck was still deficient from the first game onwards.

If anything, his puck-handling ability
Is what took a hit as he "burnt out" - the defensive zone assertiveness and awareness was always a liability.
