Scouting Report
Has a very strong lower base, so he is very difficult to knock off the puck. Works the corners of the ice well and protects the puck with aplomb. Has a good shot and scoring instincts, too. May be more of a complementary winger than go-to scorer at the highest level, since he doesn't have huge upside. Also needs to continue to work on his play without the puck.
Long Range Potential: Quality, versatile winger with some upside.
