Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "He plays a really hard, heavy game. He's not the greatest skater, but he knows his way around the net. He's shown the ability to play with a top talent (Nick Suzuki) and not be passive." (Anonymous Scout, Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Big power-winger who palys a hard north-south game. First few steps are slow and feet can look heavy at times. Decent speed when he gets going. Will go to the dirty areas and engage physically. Plays with a high compete levle. Good hands in tight around the net and possesses a very hard shot." (Phil Myre, ISS Scout)

• "He willed himself into being a player through sheer determination and hard work. ... He knows exactly where he needs to be and scores goals, and he works on it every day." (Alan Letang, Owen Sound Asst. Coach, Recrutes.ca)

• "A strong forward who finishes his hits hard. He isn't an overly aggressive player but is able to punish opponents on the wall and in the corner. He wins plenty of battles and can overpower opponents down low." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Lacks first-step exposion, has an inefficiet stride, and heavy legs. He's a nice complementary player who reads well off silled linemates and knows how to get to open ice at just the right moment. Also has soft hands and a great release, and knows how to finish. He's deadly from the circles in." (Red Line Report)
