Best natural scoring centre in the WHL. Arguably has an elite release and a really nice shot, that explodes upon release.  Gets down ice and picks his way through the open areas, using his vision to see breakdowns and create possible fast brake situations. He is able to slow the play down, survey his options when his team has numbers and create a good looks.  Has a wide skating base and his spreads his frame to protect the puck with his shoulders. This also helps helps him in front and in contested areas to anchor. He plays like he is a smaller player whose now growing a lot larger body and it makes him a mid-sized impact player. May project to wing in the pros. The best may yet to come.
