Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "People get too carried away with his lack of numbers. His compete level is fine, the details are there, and he's not cheating. He blocks shots, he's smart, and is always one of the best penalty-killers. He's got a wide gait, but he's a powerful skater." (Anonymous Scout, Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "North-South type skater with acceptable speed ... Looks like a middle-six complementary type with power winger. Needs to show more consistency with an without the puck and improve first couple steps and agility." (Chris Mooring, ISS Scout)

• "His skating will likely never be better than average, but it should improve with strength. He looks to have a weak lower body because his stride breaks down during his shift." (Anonymous Scout, Recrutes.ca)

• "He projects more as a third-liner. He’s a smart player who works hard at both ends of the ice, and has value as a penalty-killer. How much he improves his skating in the next two seasons will be key for him going forward into his professional career." (Jerome Berube, Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Has good hands, excels in the cycling game, can set up teammates, and is a presence in front of the net on deflections and rebounds. He has two main problems: his boots are heavy, and he's lacking mental strength." (Red Line Report)
