Scouting Report
Assets: Sees the ice and anticipates the play exceptionally well. Can blow by defenders with electric quickness. Possesses a strong lower body and is an awesome passer. Leads by example. Is feisty and gritty. Wins face-offs. Is particularly strong on his backhand side, which is a rarity.
Flaws: Is somewhat prone to injuries, especially to his lower body (and now concussions), which is a direct result of his gung-ho approach to every game. Therefore, his concussion situation must be monitored for the rest of his career. Could stand to pace himself, but it's not his style.
Career Potential: Elite franchise center and all-around superstar.
