Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Two-way center makes good decisions. Projects as a third-liner." (Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Two-way centre. Moves well once he gets going, but has an average first few strides. Distributes the puck well, and most passes are on target. Has decent offensive ability -- should be able to chip in at the next level. A bit of a tweener who is above-average in almost every area, but isn't elite at any one aspect of the game." (Rocco Zappia, ISS Scout)

• "Very intelligent two-way player who reads the ice quickly. Capable of playing multiple positions and all situations. Utilizes his size and skating ability to have an impact in all three zones. Very poised with puck-possession game and is able to make plays at top speed. Very good awareness away from the puck and demonstrates a capacity for finding open areas in the offensive zone. Shoots with authority." (NHL Central Scouting Report)

• "I like the kid. ... His shot can be lethal, I saw him flash a quick release with power and accuracy. ... His good was really good, but his bad wasn’t all that pretty." (Mark Edwards, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "He's always involved in the high-traffic areas, and most of his offense will come from grinding hard work and second-effort down low. Crashes the net hard both with and without the puck." (Red Line Report)
