Scouting Report
Owns great hands. What sets him apart is his awesome vision and uncanny ability to always find the open man. Can play wing and center. His great moves are an asset in one-on-one and shootout situations. Is somewhat smallish and frail, so he struggles to win more battles in the corners and avoid injuries. Doesn't shoot the puck nearly enough. Must continue to work on his play without the puck. Takes games off.
Long Range Potential: Inconsistent but creative and versatile playmaker.
