Scouting Report
Assets: Is a big-play talent. Has tremendous overall skill. Skates exceptionally well and owns the hands of a natural goal-scorer. Can also be a quality setup man. Is quite versatile, overall.
Flaws: Defensively, he is still largely a work-in-progress forward in the NHL. Also, since he is from the same area as Sidney Crosby, he will always be exposed to unfair comparisons.
Career Potential: Outstanding, speedy and versatile scoring forward with upside.
