A smart, mature, two-way center…good decision-making, leadership qualities and advanced understanding of the game…a true three-zone player…defensively responsible…will drop to block shots or find the open option and get his body in passing lanes…dangerous forechecker who reads the defense and uses an active stick to disrupt…covers up the ice for his teammates on the backcheck and always gives an honest effort…doesn’t commit a lot of mistakes and plays a very calm game while in puck possession…has solid offensive instincts…protects the puck very well and is hard to knock off of it, uses all of his frame to keep opponents away from the puck…possesses a nice, quick shot release…not a flashy puckhandler, but can carry it up ice and distribute it well…has solid vision and the ability to set up his linemates…has good balance and generates decent speed, but his skating has some room to grow…a potential two-way guy in the Zetterberg mold.
