Scouting Report
Assets: Is a great shooter. Has an explosive skating stride and great one-on-one moves. Can beat defenders on the outside with relative frequency. Simply oozes offensive acumen. Can play either wing position.
Flaws: Is not very big, so he could use added strength in order to better avoid injuries and better handle physical opponents. Also, he needs to avoid the temptation to play a constant peripheral game.
Career Potential: Outstanding scoring winger with upside.
