    Looks a lot better, not just because of the points. It’s like he isn’t stickhandling in a vacuum anymore.

    It seems like the patience he is using on the PP is starting to transition to his game.

    The one thing I noticed is his lack of patience. If you watch the first 40 games he skates over the red line and shoots for 50 feet out. He is definitely using time and space more.

    He was gassed all season before, which will pressure a player to get rid of the puck early. I think the 10-day break was the real difference maker for him. Going from a college schedule and a summer on the lake to an NHL schedule is no easy task. Eichel was frequently gassed his rookie year too.
