Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "A capable puck-rusher. He can skate the puck out of his zone, but has not showed outstanding creativity with it so far, playing at the Under-18 or Under-20 level. Defensively, he has a good stick, but will need to improve his footwork and pivoting. He had trouble at the (2017) World Juniors, especially when keeping up with the pace of the game. This was less of a problem when we saw him at the Under-18's level in April. Gross has a good two-way ability." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
