Scouting Report
Assets: Boasts the hand/eye coordination, imagination and hockey sense of an offensive stud. Doesn't shy away from heavy traffic areas, and is a constant top-end threat when roaming around an opponent's goal. Is extremely determined to be the best he can be. Scores goals with a great shot and is also a great passer.
Flaws: Isn't nearly as good in the skating department as his numbers suggest. His top-end speed is below-average. Also, he's only an average defensive player and doesn't have a physical edge to his game. Also lacks ideal size down the middle, though he does boast a very strong lower base.
Career Potential: Excellent offensive center with great upside.
