Scouting Report

Strengths: 

An excellent playmaker and stickhandler, he sees the ice very well and is quite patient with the puck. Is also a natural at putting points on the board. Is versatile up front.

Weaknesses: 

A lack of size and strength hinders his overall value as a top-six forward prospect at the National Hockey League level. Also needs to continue to work on his game without the puck.

Projection: 

Skilled playmaker with upside.
