|Assets:||Has outstanding scoring ability and a very projectable frame. Can play either wing position effectively. His hockey sense is very much an asset in the attacking zone.|
|Flaws:||Needs to bulk up and fill out in order to maximize his scoring potential in the NHL. Also needs to become a more consistent player without the puck, and more assertive overall.|
|Career Potential:||Talented scoring winger with good upside.|
