Scouting Report
Assets: Oozes skill and offensive ability. An amazing, elusive and natural skater, he's quite cerebral and a talented playmaker. A natural center, he has converted nicely to the wing.
Flaws: Is extremely undersized for the North American pro game, so he must get stronger (and avoid being labeled too 'soft') in order to maximize his scoring prowess.
Career Potential: Talented scoring forward with upside.
