Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "He clearly has a scorer's touch. Anywhere in the scoring zone, he's dangerous. But his skating needs to improve a lot. That's his ticket. And he needs more weight. Right now, he's a power forward without a lot of power." (Anonymous Scout, Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Offensive forward with great size and frame. Showing more confidence and poise with the puck. Skating and feet could be better, lateral skating is poor. Puck skills are strong. Has offensive upside at higher levels." (Greg Hickman, ISS Scout)

• "He has really, really improved. He’s like a dog on that puck, and he always seems to make the right play. Very good puck-possession skills and vision, and he can really shoot the puck. Skating is the concern but it’s improving, and that’s what you’re looking for ... players that get better in their development over the season." (Anonymous Scout, Recrutes.ca)

• "I really like his game other than his skating. He’s very smart, and he can both pass and score. His feet are a problem for sure. He looks especially bad when he’s tired." (Mark Edwards, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Lacks first-step expolsion, and overall skating is just average, but always gets where he needs to be. Always has his stick on the ice and is ready to shoot." (Red Line Report)
