A heavy playing centre-forward who can explode from his cuts into open areas and blast hard wristers. Has good vision and tremedous playmaking skills. Reads the ice and creates, hitting teammates while they are in stride. Wants to win, wants the puck and knocks the opposition off the biscuit and is a bull dog in the trenches to win pucks. He will rocket up ice, curl away from coverage, and toward the front and simply out wait goalies eventually beating them after they commit. Catches goalies with short side wake up call shots. Very good hard and accurate passer on the attack.
