Another to consider is the pace of the game. I know the WJC's are fast paced, but he's used to playing at a professional pace in the SHL. Some guys struggle when the game slows down. A couple of times I've noticed that he's often looking to push the play before his teammates are ready. Not an excuse obviously, bit just something to consider.
