SCOUTING REPORT

Tall rangy centre-forward excellent agility, quickness, skill, and hands. Is poised while in possession, due to his incredibly long reach. Far from an accomplished junior scorer, but has all the attributes that point to him developing as an excellent pro. His feet are what surprises you, how light he seems, and how easily he can bounce from contact to the area the puck is. He crashes the front and his reach gives him advantages. He will set up the screen, and use his size to make plays. Is used as a centre in junior and it gives him more space to work in the offensive end. His work in the defensive aspects is immature and a work in progress. He may project as winger later on.
