Scouting Report
Owns an intriguing combination of shooting ability and hockey sense, so he can play on any line and in any role on a hockey team at the highest level. Makes his teammates better. Is a very mature, smart player. Injuries can be a problem here, especially since he has already had to endure back issues in the junior ranks. Doesn't have optimum size for the NHL or elite skating speed. Must still work on his defense.
Long Range Potential: Talented scoring winger with upside.
