|Assets:||Has great size for the NHL, plus plenty of two-way appeal. Is versatile enough to play either center or wing, and he's also a capable checker. There's also some offensive upside to his game.|
|Flaws:||At times, he can run into some penalty trouble because he lacks a little discipline. Also, he's a bit raw in terms of his overall offensive approach. Needs to develop a niche for the highest level.|
|Career Potential:||Talented, versatile two-way forward with upside.|
