I don't think so. He still makes a lot of mistakes with and without the puck and his puck movement...needs work too.
He's certainly competent in his own end but he's got a long way to go on the transition game both forward and backward, plus he's just really...slow. He does play a smart positional game and he's physical but watching him try and take on a guy like Trocheck is just...scary. None of that is to say he couldn't develop into a useful player at the NHL level but right now he's like a post-concussion Alex Plante.
