Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "I love the guy. He had a slow start, but he's a big, heavy body with great hands. He has pro upside, shoots the puck with power. Loves the give-and-go, catch-and-shoot plays. He's always ready." (Anonymous Scout, Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Playing with lots of passion and grit. He's reliable in all zones, and is not afraid to engage physically. Can make plays and score at this level. Has good hockey sense and competes hard. Good NHL prospect." (Jose Charbonneau, ISS Scout)

• "He plays hard; he is what he is. He’s a good player, but not highly skilled. He looks like a prototypical third-line guy. If he knows and plays like he looks, maybe he has a better chance. His skating and puck skills are decent, but he is by no means explosive or dynamic." (Anonymous Scout, Recrutes.ca)

• "Mishmash worked his tail off and scored some goals when I saw him. I really don’t want this to come off too negative, but I just questioned the hockey sense. I don’t think he’s dumb, not saying that at all. I just questioned some decisions. I do think he’s an absolute lock to be fantastic in college" (Mark Edwards, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "When he's going, has good size, very good skating ability, quick hands, and a terrific shot release. But too often he's a no-show who skates around in lazy circles. Has good first-step burst and agility to excel in short-area situations." (Red Line Report)
