Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Penn State commit is smart, skilled and competitive. Skating needs work." (Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Shows excellent patience with the puck. Strong skater with a high compete level. Smaller forward -- his biggest weakness -- will need to bulk up. Has potential to be star at the college level, and strong pro potential in his game." (Tyler Sian, ISS Scout)

• "Second-line center filled an all-purpose role for the (U.S. NTDP Under-18) club, scoring and setting up important goals, killing penalties and winning key faceoffs. What he lacks in foot speed he makes up for with keen anticipation and hockey sense." (Recrutes.ca)

• "Has good hockey intelligence and does lots of little things well around the rink that turn into bigger plays for his team. He does not necessarily possess that high-end skill sets, yet does a good job reading plays both offensively and defensively, and shows the vision to find open teammates. His two biggest assets are certainly his hockey IQ and playmaking/passing abilities." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "On a good day, he is an OK skater. He gets to where he needs to be, but he will not win many foot races. When he is carrying the puck, he can dictate the pace of play. When others are, he can struggle to keep up." (McKeen's Draft Preview)
