|Blessed with ideal size and strength for the center position at the National Hockey League level, he competes for every square inch of ice. Produces good numbers thanks to his poise and playmaking ability. May need to amp up his physicality in North American-sized ice. Must also live up to expectations as the son of a legendary player in his hometown. Also needs to avoid injury to maximize NHL output.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Excellent all-round center with good upside.|
