Scouting Report
Assets: An excellent playmaker, he is creative with the puck and also savvy in the defensive zone. A strong positional player, he has a knack for being in the right spot while on the ice. Is a factor on both special teams.
Flaws: Does not have ideal size and strength, which somewhat limits his effectiveness against bigger opponents in the National Hockey League. Could stand to improve his take-off stride and also shoot the puck more.
Career Potential: Talented, two-way playmaker.
