Scouting Report
Is a great shooter. Has an explosive skating stride and great one-on-one moves. Can beat defenders on the outside with relative frequency. Simply oozes offensive acumen. Can play either wing position. Is not very big, so he could use added strength in order to better avoid injuries and better handle physical opponents. Also, he needs to avoid the temptation to play a constant peripheral game.
Long Range Potential: Outstanding scoring winger with upside.
