Scouting Report
Assets: Has very good skating ability, two-way upside and the playmaking skills needed to put up points. A determined player, he can play either center or wing.
Flaws: Needs to continue adding strength to his 6-0 frame in order to better fend off opposing defensemen. Must also improve his game-to-game consistency.
Career Potential: Skilled, yet fragile forward with a little upside.
