Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "John has a high hockey IQ, and it shows when he is carrying the puck up the ice and making that right read on where the puck should go, but also shows patience with the puck. If there’s no play, he won't force the puck." (Justin Sproule, Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
