Scouting Report
Is exceptionally versatile, able to play in any game situation. Has great wheels, excellent instincts and plenty of two-way acumen. Also, he is a scoring threat when on the penalty kill. Does not own ideal size for the National Hockey League, so his energetic style can lead to too much wear and tear over the course of 82 games. Injuries and inconsistency are also factors here.
Long Range Potential: Versatile, speedy two-way forward.
