Scouting Report
Is a near-elite passer and playmaker. Owns game-changing speed, tremendous dangling ability and a very high hockey IQ. Shoots the puck with accuracy. Is also a willing student who wants to improve his deficiencies. Lacks height and is significantly light for the professional hockey ranks, so he must add a lot of bulk and get physically stronger in order to maximize his talent at the highest level. His lack of size hurts his defense.
Long Range Potential: Diminutive but dangerous offensive talent with good upside.
