Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "His smarts and maturity on the ice help him be efficient against older players. He has good size, utilizing it well down low and often near the net, looking for rebounds or to tip shots. He's good away from the puck as well; his good on-ice awareness and active stick make him a player with value as a defensive forward. One knock on him is his skating. ... We like his size, smarts, and defensive game, but we're still waiting for him to take the next step with his game offensively." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
