Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "A complete player who does all the little things well that coaches love. He's a smart player away from the puck, can help his team on the PK, and he's a good passer with good vision in the offensive zone. He does some good work along the wall, using his size to win puck battles. His offensive potential is still to be determined. .... We like his smarts at both ends, as well as his level of maturity on the ice. However, his skating will need a lot of improvement." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
