Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Has the ability to change speeds, which makes him tough to handle for opposing defensemen. He has great hockey IQ and puck skills. He has the ability to make defenders miss him one-on-one with his slick hands. ... On the power play, he was often used on the left side, but saw some ice time early in the season on the point."
