Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Has found a regular role on a stacked Soo team and looks like one of the better prospects for 2018 draft -- having accumulated 27 points in a limited role while bringing size competitiveness and smarts. He will likely join a long list of recent Soo centers who blossomed in their draft years." (Recrutes.ca 2017 Draft Guide)

• "Has great size at the forward position. He is capable of playing both centre and the wing, showing good versatility (in 2016-17). His best asset is his heavy shot. ...  He gets a lot of power behind it, but he could work on the accuracy as it can be a little wild at times. He has a good frame and can protect the puck, but would benefit from adding more muscle to his frame. ... Clearly prefers shooting over passing. ... Has a lot of upside going into his draft year."
