Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Very responsible in his zone and is always well aware of his surroundings on the ice.  ... He's not overly big, but he's strong on his skates, and does a good job holding onto the puck for a long period of time thanks to some good puck-protection skills. He's a decent skater, but has surprising acceleration that he should use more often to catch opponents off-guard when rushing the puck. He can be used in any type of situation and can also play on the wing." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
