Scouting Report

Strengths: 

An industrious forward with very good skating ability, he owns the versatility to play both center and wing. Can play a shutdown role if required and is the type of player coaches like to put on the ice with the game on the line.

Weaknesses: 

Is a bit undersized (5-10, 190 pounds) for the National Hockey League, so he will need to get even stronger in order to maximize output at the highest level. Does not have the high-end skills to play a top-six forward role.

Projection: 

Solid, speedy and versatile forward with a little upside.
