Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Kris Letang-style puck-mover helped Team USA to gold at (World) Under-18's." (Hockey News 2017 Draft Preview)

• "Elite skater. So good on his edges. He's got edges, and he's certainly a guy I'm excited to watch at Michigan. The skating ability is just ridiculous." (Anonymous Scout, Hockey News 2017 Future Watch)

• "When you score 53 points in 65 games playing defence with the Under-18 U.S. team the year before you are draft eligible, scouts are willing to overlook you being just 5-10. Extremely talented offensive blueliner." (Recrutes.ca 2017 Draft Guide)

• "Does a tremendous job in distributing the puck. ... Can sometimes trust his skills a little too much instead of moving it safely up the ice, yet there is no denying his skating ability, IQ, and offensive components." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
