Scouting Report
Owns a projectable frame and plenty of speed for a big man. Is strong on his skates and a load to move out from in front of the net. Can score goals and also be a nasty opponent to deal with. Can he become a more consistent, game-to-game performer? He must improve in this area in order to maximize output as a true NHL power forward. Needs to improve his defensive work.
Long Range Potential: Prototypical power forward with good upside.
