Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

"Built like a twig, but good offensive instincts & scorer." -Red Line Report

"Two way winger that works hard and competes. Has a good skating stride with speed. His puck skills were fine. Like his energy and effort. Was good at both ends of the ice. Difficult to handle down low and in front of the net. Can be a bit of an agitator at times.”

Strengths: 

High character, relentless player in all three zones, especially on the forecheck. Good skater with an above average shot and no fear of high traffic areas. Plays an honest, north-south, pro style game for a winger. Extremely versatile and has spotted on any line, 1-4, in junior.

Weaknesses: 

Needs to fill out physically. He competes well enough now at a light weight in junior, but once he adds muscle he'll be overpowering down low in the offensive zone. Latent offensive upside still needs to develop.

Projection: 

2-way winger with enough offensive skill to contribute on any line
