Scouting Report
Complements skilled linemates very well, due to his size, reach and ability to win puck battles. Is an imposing figure who can make his presence felt when on the ice. Has solid offensive instincts, too. In order to thrive in the National Hockey League, he will need to completely fill out his big frame and become even stronger so as to battle in the corners (and also to fill a role in front of the net).
Long Range Potential: Big, skilled complementary winger with some upside.
