Scouting Report
Has excellent instincts and offensive creativity. Owns an effortless skating stride and incredible puck skills. Possesses great playmaking ability. Also has an uncanny ability to hold onto the puck a very long while. Does not shoot the puck enough, even when he's in prime scoring position. Is not physically strong enough in the corners. Can appear lazy at times, since his game is more graceful than gritty. Is in decline on offense.
Long Range Potential: Dangling, playmaking winger in decline.
