|Supremely quick with outstanding hockey sense, he produces loads of offense on a nightly basis. Is a natural with the puck and oozes great patience when he has it. Is very smart in all facets of hockey and has speed to burn. Does not own ideal size (6-0, 182 pounds) for the National Hockey League game, so he will need to get a lot stronger. Must improve his play without the puck and prove he can continue to produce elite numbers over time.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Talented, playmaking center with good upside.|
