Finished third on the Whalers in scoring with 55 points and second with 15 power-play goals. Finished in second place in the hardest shot competition at the 2008 CHL Top Prospects game (94 miles-per-hour). Helped his team win the OHL Championship last season and competed for the 2007 Memorial Cup in Vancouver, BC.


Is a reliable penalty killer first, a role-player with the Plymouth Whalers, yet possesses an upside. He has a long reach with his stick, a quick active stick and he is a good face-off man. He has surprising speed as a long-legged skater with a long, loping stride. He hits top speed remarkably quickly.
