A gritty and strong hard working game coupled with some nice offensive skills and a pro-ready shot. Plays the game hard and is always looking to make a difference whether it be on the score sheet or in a hard fought battle along the wall. Is far from a one-trick pony and will do anything asked of him by his coaches. Is a very good skater with nice agility, healthy top speed, strong balance and explosive two-step acceleration. Protects the puck well with his long limbs, strong core and nice positioning but also has the hands to maneuver through traffic and make defenders look foolish. Has shown that he has the smarts and hockey sense to make it as a solid contributor at the next level.  Skills, although solid, are not top end and his offensive abilities have a limit at the next level. Needs to add more strength and improve on his defensive play as he tries to be a factor in his own zone. (May 2010)
