Scouting Report
Owns a very good sniper's release, so goal-scoring is his strong suit. Skates very well and knows how to free himself from coverage to get open. Can even play the point on the power play, due to his great shot. Is not overly big, so he needs to add more bulk in order to maximize production in the North American game. Also, he needs to continue to work on his play in the defensive zone, as well as his game-to-game intensity.
Long Range Potential: Talented winger with upside.
