Scouting Report
Assets: Has great hands and goal-scoring instincts, so he is effective on a scoring line and with the man advantage. Can play both center and wing, which adds value. His quick shot is his best attribute.
Flaws: Is somewhat thin, so he needs to add more bulk in order to better prepare for the rigors of the North American professional game. Also needs to become more of a 200-foot player for the pros.
Career Potential: Solid, versatile scoring forward with upside.
