Director of NHL Central Scouting, E.J. McGuire
“Excellent skater with high-end speed and agility and maybe overall, a high skill player. A great wrist shot, he plays with an edge. He'll fight, not often, but when he does it shows his meanness. Who can we compare him to? A Brenden Morrow perhaps, who was drafted by Dallas and is still a contributing captain-member.”
Sudbury Wolves head coach Mike Foligno
“John has worked very hard this season on becoming a two-way player. John is one of the fastest skaters in the league. He also possesses one of the hardest wrist shots in the league. The attributes make him a very dangerous player. But what will make him a dangerous NHL player is the ability to use these skills to create offense and also being a contributing factor in his defensive zone. John has really started to contribute in the defensive zone and also has been one of our top penalty killers. John is also a very physical player and not afraid to initiate contact. He has the hockey sense of an NHL player and plays better with better players around him. He strives to be the best player on the ice.”
