Central Scouting's B.J. MacDonald:
"He's sort of one of those players that you might classify him as sneaky-good. His skating is a little odd, but he always gets to the right spot. He's really tough on the puck, he really stays on the puck and he goes to the net. He has very quick hands, very good hands. He knows how to make a play. He can give and go. He's the type of player that the better players he plays with, the better level he'll go to."
I challenged him to a goalie fight when we chatted before the game, but he didn't want to go. It was strange to see him at the other end of the ice, but I'm sure he felt the same way looking down at our end.
