NHL Central Scouting’s Blair MacDonald

“I think it is going to take Joe a bit of time to develop into the player that he can be because of the league he is playing in is maybe at a lower caliber than the other leagues. He is very rangy with his stick; he dishes the puck well and has really good on-ice awareness. If he can get his skating a little more energetic, he’ll be a big strong player down the middle. When he is at his best he is a strategic player, I wouldn’t classify him as a power-forward, he is very smart and his positioning is very good; he knows where to be and where to go at the right time.”

 

Camrose Kodiaks’ head coach and GM Boris Rybalka

“I think the RBC (Canadian Junior A Championship) was Joe's coming-out party. Joe started to dominate by using his size, stick and reach. He skates well, he has soft hands. He's got the full package."
