Scouting Report
Owns very good playmaking skills and mobility. Is creative, plays a mature game and possesses two-way acumen. Always works hard, is very dedicated and responsible in his own end. Can play all three forward positions. At times, physical opponents will get the best of him (especially in the corners). Is only average in the goal-scoring department; it wouldn't hurt if he started shooting the puck more often. Lacks offensive consistency.
Long Range Potential: Quality, versatile two-way forward.
