Assets: Has a very projectable frame and plenty of two-way upside. Works hard, is versatile enough to play both center and wing, is aggressive in the corners and can also score some.
Flaws: Doesn't have obvious top-six forward skills, so the jury is still out on his point production potential at the highest level. Must also get physically stronger in order to maximize his two-way game.
Career Potential: Two-way forward with some upside.
