NHL Central Scouting's Al Jensen
“He's a John Tonelli-type player, very strong. I've seen him run over players along the boards to get by them. He competes very hard and has good hands and puck skills. He has a strong skating stride -- not lightning speed, but very effective and strong. He has a good, hard wrist shot and is responsible in his own end."

"He'll give his opponents fits when they try to cover him in front of the net. He's a power forward who likes to drive to the net at every opportunity. He has very good hands with a quick release and will catch goaltenders by surprise. He scores goals in many ways and makes big plays. He loves to battle along the boards and, in the corners, protects the puck with confidence. He's aggressive and tough and will fight; he's a team leader.”
