|Oozes skill and offensive ability. An amazing, elusive and natural skater, he's quite cerebral and a talented playmaker. A natural center, he has converted nicely to the wing. Is extremely undersized for the North American pro game, so he could stand to get stronger (and avoid being labeled too 'soft'). Is not a great defensive player, either.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Talented, highly-skilled scoring winger.|
