Scouting Report
Assets: Owns a tremendous combination of NHL size and elite skill. Skates very well for his size and is a great playmaker. He is also quite versatile and can play all three forward positions, which adds value.
Flaws: In order to maximize production at the highest level, he will need to amp up his physical play (and take full advantage of his 6-4, 211-pound frame). Could also stand to improve his shot a little.
Career Potential: Big, talented and versatile playmaker with upside.
