A great skater both in terms of top end speed and lateral mobility…he accelerates in two powerful strides with the puck which allows him to either beat defenders or draw penalties…handles the puck well in traffic and has nice vision…is more of a natural finisher and has a great shot that is deceptive to keepers with a quick release…drives to the net and works hard to gain possession of the puck…plays a solid defensive game and competes night in and night out…read the play well and maintains solid positioning…his size is also a positive as it allows him to fight through checks…not afraid to stickup for himself or teammates and plays with an element of grit. Strength is needed to help compliment the game he plays when he graduates to the pro ranks…the perceived notion that his impressive play is a direct result of Brayden Schenn’s playmaking ability, he needs to continue to prove his own skills will make him a solid pro…defensively he has not been asked to take on much responsibility which has left that part of him game rather underdeveloped.
