|Is a tremendous skater with excellent balance and overall mobility. Is also a creative playmaker with outstanding vision and puck skills. Can quarterback the power play with aplomb. Does not have ideal size for the National Hockey League, so he must add bulk, gain greater strength and prove he can continue to produce quality offensive numbers at the highest level.|
