Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Has the size a team would crave and the physical edge and toughness to go along with it. He played on a struggling team that rarely had more than one effective line (in 2016-17) so he ended up struggling in most viewings. He likes to battle and work around the net using his big frame to hold space and bother defenders and goalies, but has trouble creating scoring chances in tight and getting his sticks on shots around the net. Skating needs work." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
