Scouting Report
Has quickness, hockey sense, playmaking acumen and shiftiness. Provides a lot of energy and is stronger on his skates than expected. Packs a dangerous shot and is gritty (willing to fight for the puck in the corners). One of the smallest players around (5-5, 178 pounds), he will always have to overcome the lack-of-size-and-strength stigma placed upon him--especially at the highest level. Injuries can be a problem, obviously.
Long Range Potential: Diminutive energy winger.
