Scouting Report
Assets:
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.
Flaws:
Is extremely undersized for the North American pro game, so he could stand to get stronger (and avoid being labeled too 'soft'). Isn't a great defensive player, either.
Career Potential:
Talented, highly-skilled scoring winger.
