Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Won the BCHL championship with the Westside Warriors in 2016. He was listed by Portland. A late birthday with an already developed body, his game is that of a banger and grinder who can throw hits and plays with minimal offensive ability. Being in and out of the lineup didn't help him. Would be interested in seeing him as a complementary left wing with some more skilled players -- creating a hard forecheck. However, not overly optimistic he'll be much of a prospect in 2018."
