Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Has sound fundamentals and some scoring upside. Is a pretty good playmaker who is also responsible in the defensive zone. Can play either wing position.

Weaknesses: 

Lacks ideal size for the NHL game, and as a result can get knocked off the puck too easily. Isn't a natural goal-scorer and doesn't drive the net enough.

Projection: 

Potential scoring winger.
