NHL Central Scouting's Jack Barzee
"Danny is a strong kid, but not a very big, physical kid. He has very quick feet and he's very smart. He's clever with the puck, he can set people up and he can finish. Sometimes he can take himself away from his best assets - thinking and skating and using his hands, and he tries to knock big guys down and he physically can't, but he's got that bite to his game. He has a real top-end level offensively, he could be a top-two line guy in the NHL someday and he's going to play and be successful."
