Scouting Report
Assets: Owns very good playmaking skills and great speed. 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.
Flaws: Must continue to get stronger in order to better handle physical opponents. Is only average in the goal-scoring department; it wouldn't hurt if he started to utilize his vast tool-set much more to put up even better numbers.
Career Potential: Quality two-way forward.
