Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "A speedy, skilled forward. ... He is a little undersized, but he has a lot of talent to compensate. He likes to carry the puck up ice and can evade checkers very well. He beats defenders one on one and is a threat to score if he can get behind the defenders due to his strong breakaway ability. ... Has a good work ethic and competes hard on the forecheck. ... He lacks size but has pretty good strength and will look to knock opponents off stride and steal the puck.." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
