Assets: Is at his best with the puck on his blade, as he is an excellent puckhandler and boasts very good hockey sense. Can score goals or set up his linemates with equal aplomb.
Flaws: Lacks ideal size for the National Hockey League game, and already has dealt with concussion issues. Isn't a great skater, either, so he needs to prove he can score in North America.
Career Potential: Talented scoring winger with upside.
