Scouting Report
Assets: A smooth operater, he's extremely heady and a good playmaker. Makes his linemates better in the offensive zone. Has a wealth of two-way ability and setup skills. Is a big asset on both special teams.
Flaws: Is smallish by NHL standards, and must shake the 'soft' label in order to maximize his overall upside. Can be prone to injuries because of his slight stature. Doesn't always shoot enough, so he can be more selfish.
Career Potential: Skilled two-way center.
