Scouting Report
Is a strong offensive talent with excellent playmaking skills. Also boasts sound defensive acumen and plenty of two-way upside. Is a very smart hockey player. Can play either center or wing. Does not own ideal size for the National Hockey League, so he must get stronger and prove he can withstand the physicality at the highest level. Does not have high-end skating ability, either.
Long Range Potential: Talented, versatile playmaking forward with upside.
