Scouting Report
Assets: Owns outstanding hockey sense, two-way smarts and excellent vision. Passes the puck well and is a very creative playmaker on offense. Can be used in all game situations and is trustworthy. Has projectable size.
Flaws: Will need to become a better goal-scorer for the highest level. In order to do so, he could stand to shoot the puck a little more. Will also need to fill out his lanky frame in order to maximize output in the pro ranks.
Career Potential: Excellent, two-way center with upside.
