Assets: Is a natural goal-scoring talent with great size and instincts for putting the biscuit in the basket. For a big winger, he skates very well, too. Displays great hand/eye coordination. Can play either wing position.
Flaws: Needs to work on his play at the defensive end of the rink and also his game-to-game consistency. Must fill out his big frame in order to maximize his scoring potential at the highest level.
Career Potential: Big goal-scoring winger with good upside.
