Scouting Report
Assets: Sees the ice and anticipates the play exceptionally well. Can blow by defenders with electric quickness. Possesses a strong lower body and is an awesome passer. Leads by example. Is feisty and gritty. Wins face-offs. Is particularly strong on his backhand side, which is a rarity.
Flaws: Is somewhat prone to injuries, especially to his lower body (and concussions), which is a direct result of his full-throttle approach to every game. Therefore, his concussion situation must be monitored for the rest of his career. Could stand to play at different speeds (but isn't as good).
Career Potential: Elite franchise center and all-round superstar.
