SCOUTING REPORT

Displays a nice set of stick skills, agility and physicality. His feet allow nice forward push and his edging gets him quickly to the areas he wants to inhabit. Has a strong initial burst, excellnet vision and distribution skills. Gets involved on the attack and is more than willing to apply pressure in the attack zone by cycling in. Has a frame that can add more girth and muscle. Will play physical to make things more difficult on the opposition. Typecast as a finesse offense-man, he has shown he can play a solid defensive game with increased  assertiveness. Will start to fill out his lean frame and that will aid in an uptick of his physicality. This rangy defenseman may be an underated one on draft boards, but expect the real scouts to make sure his name is called earlier.
