Scouting Report
Assets: A highly skilled player, he also displays very good two-way acumen and the competitive fire of a future captain. Will also show a feisty side that's tough to play against. Can play either wing or center.
Flaws: Will need to get significantly stronger if he is to continue to play his abrasive style in the long run at the NHL level. Also, he must prove himself as a goal-scorer in the pros. Needs more defensive work to play center.
Career Potential: Talented, feisty forward with upside.
