Scouting Report
Is a very creative passer and thinker when on the ice, so his playmaking ability is his biggest strength. Also owns a projectable frame. Displays sound work ethic and good two-way acumen. Is a natural at producing offense. Lacks game-to-game consistency, so he needs to do a better job of showing up every night. Also needs to fill out his frame. While he skates well, he lacks an extra gear--especially for the National Hockey League.
Long Range Potential: Creative, playmaking center with upside.
