SCOUTING REPORT

Second year eligible Swiss left winger with good size but needs to develop his agility and foot speed. Uses his size reach and fluid movement skills to close lanes, and even exploded up ice while killing penalties in his limited action on the fourth line at the World Junior U-20s. Really good at quick starting the counter attack. Has good straight line speed in open areas, but does tend to stop moving his pins when things close down. Can be strong on the puck but his forte is dropping into an open area in the high slot to let hius heavy shot go on net. A solid puck handler and passer from the off handed left wing, who won't excite as an offensive player but nevertheless gives great effort and can develop.
