Assets: Shoots the puck well and has the natural instincts of a pure sniper. His hockey sense is above-average because he knows where to be to score. His hand/eye coordination is also a plus Flaws: Doesn't skate very well, so he may have scoring limitations at the highest level as a result. Also, he lacks ideal size for the National Hockey League game and must continue to get stronger. Career Potential: Skilled scoring winger with upside. Editorial supplied by 'The Sports Forecaster'
