Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

He is a strong skater with a deadly shot -- McKeen's Hockey 2019
He’s more of a shooter than he is a passer; he’s got a very good shot from the point and is not shy to use it. -- Hockeyprospect.com 2019
He is a dynamic threat on the counter attack and can really punish the opposition on turnovers -- Future Considerations 2019
He moves around the ice quickly, competes hard and doesn't need much room to release his shot -- Draftin Europe 2018

Strengths: 

Highly touted before coming to North America for his blend of speed and skill. Has a heavy, accurate shot and can fill the nets up if paired with the right playmaker.

Weaknesses: 

Struggled on a poor team after the move to North America and did not handle adversity well. Was a healthy scratch early in the year after clashing with coaches out of frustration. Attitude and coachability need to be monitored.

Projection: 

Second line scorer in the NHL... or KHL
