|Usually provides a bundle of energy and never stops skating. Hits and possesses a strong work rate that's highlighted by excellent athleticism. Does his best offensive work in front of the net. Packs a sneaky shot and uses good quickness and positioning in the offensive zone. Can be very effective on both special teams. Lacks the creativity and touch to create offense for himself and his linemates on a regular basis at the National Hockey League level. Surprisingly strong, he would benefit by continuing to add some more bulk to his 6-2 frame. Lacks some consistency, especially in the offensive zone. Can take bad penalties from time to time.|
|Long Range Potential:|
