|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 is 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. Must develop his niche at the highest level.|
|Career Potential:||Talented, versatile two-way forward with a little upside.|

"When the lights shone their brightest, he was the biggest star on the ice," Maloney said.

And when I say that, it's just the pace that he plays at, the tempo, the shift-in, shift-out quickness of the game."
