Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Is a strong two-way forward with a thick lower base, so he skates very well and is not easy to knock off the puck. Can be a factor in physical contests. Has some goal-scoring acumen.Can play all three forward positions if required, plus he is a factor on special teams, which adds to his overall value in the NHL.

Weaknesses: 

Needs to work on his passing skills in order to become a better playmaker in the professional ranks. Must also avoid taking too many bad penalties in the pros.

Projection: 

Quality versatile two-way forward
