What People Are Saying:
  • Future Considerations: "an offensively skilled forward who, when he is playing the game at an appropriate effort level, is hard to for added muscle on his slight frame."
  • Hockey Prospect: "will cut to the middle off the rush to get shots on net and can get open and park himself right in front of the opposition’s goal for chances in tight...goes to the net to pick up rebounds and loose pucks, but has to watch that he isn’t always taking long outside shots rather than driving the puck to the net...has the offensive instincts...pretty strong on his feet but still needs to add some size and strength."
  • Jim Johannson (USA Hockey): "a really smart centerman, sees the ice well, uses linemates...makes linemates better."
