I haven't seen a lot of him, but I think it could.

Obviously his skill is undeniable.

His skating, hands and hockey sense really make him an elusive guy, so I don't think he has to worry too much about not being able to handle the physical side of the NHL.

He isn't going to win too many puck battles in the corner or along the wall, but he puts a lot of effort into backchecking. I could see him developing a decent defensive game eventually even despite his size.
