Scouting Report
Has plenty of scoring prowess and offensive instincts. Displays great hands. Knows where to be in order to score goals regularly. Also displays a strong lower body. Needs to improve his play without the puck, as well as get stronger in his upper body, in order to maximize his pro prospects. Will never be a great defensive winger.
Long Range Potential: Talented, inconsistent winger with a little upside.
