Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

"Pure sniper with good size must round out his game." -Red Line Report

“Good size winger that can skate and handle the puck. Showed a decent set of hands and quick release shot. Showed flashes of ability but lacked consistency. Needs to play with urgency and show a better level of compete. Top round skill. High risk pick”. -ISS

Strengths: 

Pure finisher with an instinct for finding openings in the offensive zone and an incredibly quick release with pinpoint accuracy. Rated Red Line's fourth best natural goal scorer in this draft class. Good speed and good size and doesn't mind going to the front of the net to pop in goals or attempt deflections.

Weaknesses: 

Doesn't use his linemates well and doesn't really have much pull up or lateral aspect to his game. Straight line player stays in his lane with the puck and gets swallowed up by angle-savvy defenders too easily. The next time he back checks may be his first time. Not much interest in the defensive side of the game to date.

Projection: 

Scoring line winger
