|Has the size NHL scouts drool over from the center position. Skates well for a big man, is tenacious without the puck, works well in the corners and displays deft penalty-killing and shutdown acumen. Can score important goals. Could stand to shoot the puck more often in order to score more goals at the National Hockey League level. Also, he is only an average passer so his playmaking skills leave something to be desired from the center position.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Excellent two-way center.|
