Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "A gritty kid. He's a gamer who comes to play. ... Plays a two-way game." (Anonymous Scout, Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Good-size, two-way forward with lean build. Game based off smarts and on-ice awareness. Active forecheck and backcheck with good stick use. Has the tools to be a role player at the NHL with development." (Ben Gallant, ISS Scout)

• "I’ve always liked his game, it’s just that he’s so weak. But he’s got some things working for him, he’s a smart player. I think he’ll jump right out of the gate next year if he gets stronger this summer. He could come around and be a good offensive player. He had good puck skills, very good vision, and can shoot the puck." (Anonymous Scout, Recrutes.ca)

• "Possesses an above average shot, showing good accuracy and velocity behind it, however he would benefit from speeding up his release and taking advantage of open shooting lanes more often. He competes on both sides of the puck and shows a desire to be first to pucks." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Smartly generates offence by putting bad-angle shots into goaltender's pads, creating rebounds into the slot. Team-oriented and well-coached. Comes back deep defensively to intercept passes. Unselfish, pass-first type must use his great shot release more when he's in good scoring territory." (Red Line Report)
