What happened to this sure-fire prospect?
IMO it's been a mix of:
a) He's just 20 and may still pan out
b) Doesn't handle physical play well at all
c) The Jackets suck at developing players
d) Looked great against teenagers in the WJC, but against NHLers (or even AHLers) his skill doesn't stand out as much, so his lack of defense/physicality becomes more of an issue
That's because of the CHL... oh wait...
This may shed some light on the situation. He likes to play the perimeter, more so after this hit.
