|Owns a wealth of passing ability and is an exceptionally creative playmaker with the puck. Can also score goals himself, thanks largely to a big shot. Has a chance to become the greatest scorer Switzerland has produced. Needs to fill out his 6-1 frame and get physically stronger in order to compete against bigger National Hockey League defenders on a nightly basis. Must also continue to work on his play when he does not have the puck.|
|Long Range Potential:|
