Big with impressive skills similar to a poor man’s Marian Hossa…he has a good shot and deadly one-timer… Photo courtesy Trinec the puck is off his stick in a flash…finds open ice and makes himself available…demonstrates his strength as he drives the net or peels the puck off a opponent…his skating is decent and he has good first step quickness…often times you will not notice him until he makes his impact by scoring…uses his size and long reach to protect the puck. Tends to skate around the ice making wide turns and not contributing much to the play…he needs to him off the puck far too easily for a prospect with his size and strength…he always looks winded and may have poor conditioning habits…defensively he needs much work and better effort level…his physical game is limited.
