Assets: This American showed huge improvements during his draft eligible season, jumping from 12 points as an OHL rookie for Saginaw in 2011-12 to 67 points this past year. Excellent skater who has the passing ability to be one of the best playmaking centers to come out of this draft. Flaws: Has good height but needs to bulk up before entering the NHL. Also has to work on being more responsible in the defensive zone.
