Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Possesses great speed and utilizes it on the forecheck and the backcheck. He is aggressive in pursuit of the puck and, despite his size, he has no problem engaging bigger opponents. ... He likes to take the puck to the net and is more of a shooter than a passer. He has a great release on his shots, which are well positioned. ... He would benefit from getting bigger as his style of game is tough to play at the NHL level when you're under six feet tall." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
