Scouting Report
Assets: Is extremely fast and industrious. Plays with fire and passion. Is a capable playmaker with plenty of goal-scoring prowess. Can play wing, where he uses his speed even more to his advantage, or at center.
Flaws: Sometimes, he tries to do too much because of his impressive skill set, instead of letting the game come to him more naturally. Also, his intense, all-out style can lead to too many injuries.
Career Potential: Excellent, versatile speed demon.
