He needs power skating lessons first and foremost, and he needs to focus on getting bigger/stronger. Also needs lots of work on getting his shot off quicker (the whole team needs help in this department)

I think if Stepan dedicates himself to working out like a maniac this summer and improves his skating, his natural ability for playmaking/vision can start to take over.
