Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Second-time eligible kid competes hard, skates well, had skill at WJC." (Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "His compete level is excellent. He’s not a high-end offensive player in terms of skills, but he has the potential to produce in a supporting role. He can make plays when he’s at his top speed, and uses his speed really well on the forecheck to force opposing players to make quicker decisions by pressuring them. He lacks the ideal size to win those puck battles, but always provides a good effort. With his speed and work ethic, he has value as a penalty killer, and this could be a role for him if he ever makes it to the NHL." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
