Strong relentless light-footed attacking centre who understands the nuances on the attack and continues to maintain pressure with passes, positioning and poerful wrist shots. can let go off hard back-hand passes as well as burying his chances from both outside and in close. His superb skating allows him to win the races to the loose pucks, shake and roll off coverage, and take pucks to the net, always putting the defending team on their heels. light opn his blades, he will make one cut, then the next , and then pivot and shoot while in motion. He creates offense where there seems to be none, taking everything towards the goal. High temp player who is relentless and though thought of as a playmaker, there is a hungry goal scorer locked himself too. Already sows an all-around 200 foot game and habits and details in puck support that show and upward trajectory in his development. Committed to the University of Michigan. No over-all outstanding characteristic in his toolbox, just a player who does all things very well.  May find his way into the first round.
