A smaller, but highly skilled, offensive winger…always thinking offense and what his next move will be to create a scoring chance…a predatory mindset, finding dead ice to set up for a wicked one-timer…his shot selection is impressive as his wrist shot and snap shot both have a very quick release and strong accuracy…also has that “nose for the net” as he shows up in the right place to pounce on dangerous scoring opportunities multiple times per game… fast feet, hands and head…balanced on his skates and can create separation with his speed…more gritty and willing to battle than his size would indicate…works hard on the wall to move pucks to teammates…needs to hit the weight room and build on his frame…has some Vladimir Tarasenko type qualities in his game…a potential NHL goal-scorer.
