|Has impressive size, hand/eye coordination and reach. Is at his best with the puck on his blade. Can score goals and also set up teammates with equal aplomb. Is versatile enough to play the point on the power play.|
|Is not a great skater, which somewhat hinders his otherwise supreme offensive acumen for the NHL level. Does not utilize his physical gifts enough to his advantage. Takes some nights off. Concussion issues hurt him.|
|Talented but inconsistent and fragile winger.|
