Scouting Report
Assets: Supremely quick with outstanding hockey sense, he produces loads of offense on a nightly basis. Is a natural with the puck and oozes great patience when he has it. Is very smart in all facets of hockey and has speed to burn.
Flaws: Does not own ideal size (6-0, 182 pounds) for the National Hockey League game, so he will need to get a lot stronger. Must improve his play without the puck and prove he can continue to produce elite numbers over time.
Career Potential: Talented, playmaking center with good upside.
