Scouting Report
Assets:
Owns a very projectable (6-2) frame and plenty of two-way acumen. Is a creative playmaker who can pass the puck with aplomb. Can be used in all game situations (and both special teams). Is pretty good at everything in hockey.
Flaws:
Needs to add significant bulk and get a lot stronger in order to maximize output at the National Hockey League level. At times, he can get out of defensive position because of over-pursuit (or simply trying too hard).
Career Potential:
Quality two-way forward with upside.
