Scouting Report
Assets: 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 must gain added strength in order to better adjust to the North American pro ranks. Also, he needs to avoid the temptation to play a constant peripheral game.
Career Potential: Talented scoring winger with good upside.
