Right Wing
NHL 2019 mock draft
Draft Type Round Pick Team
Projection 2 45
Projects as a future power wing with good offense tools, soft hands. His production climbed and looks to improve on as a scorer further. He will need to fill out get stronger, fixing the hitch in his skating. He also can improve his first couple steps. Displays a pro level shot / release. Committed to Michigan State University where he can eventually improve on his all-around game. Impressive combination of size, skill, power and hockey smarts. Until he was injured, he was clear the best player in the USHL Showcase. He will be a good value selection as a developmental player who could help down the pike.
