SCOUTING REPORT

Point per game player who continues to play inside his level of capability. Displays good offensive smarts but spends the game in the trenches doing the dirty work for his teammates.  has good vision and is deceptive in how he moves into areas and pouncingon loose pucks for goals. Gets pucks in deep and then ensures the opposition with have their work cut out to bring it on out. He will jump up into the open seams when breakdowns occur. Will shorten his shot wind-up when in congested traffic areas, battles hard in areas that are contested sets pucks, and quickly sends them in quick passes to teammates. Lots to like about this athletic player, but he is still thin, and needs strength and girth to keep him from being ridden off pucks.
