Scouting Report
Quick and shifty, he displays great patience with the puck on his stick. Is a very creative playmaker with smooth passing skills. Has a tendency to pass up quality scoring chances, so he needs to make opponents more honest by shooting the puck with greater frequency. Also, he is somewhat undersized for the National Hockey League level and will need to constantly prove he can handle bigger defenders at the highest level. Needs to get stronger.
Long Range Potential: Diminutive playmaker with some upside.
