Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Heading to Harvard in 2018-19, there was considerable buzz starting around this darkhorse prospect even if some scouts still have their misgivings about his hockey sense." (Recrutes.ca)

• "He’s one of those great skating high-energy guys. I think he’s a scout-buster. Like your daughter would notice this kid, but when you get past the fluff you see some holes in his game. Heads down, turns pucks over.I thought he got exposed a bit in the USHL at the end of the year." (Anonymous NHL Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Fast, agile four-way skater with good short-area burst. Plays with a chip on his shoulder and has some snarl to his game. ... The hockey IQ is our concern -- decisions have to get better and faster." (Red Line Report)
