Scouting Report

"He was in and out of the lineup in 2014-15, just trying to be an offensive guy, but this year he played [on a] top-four pair against other team's first line in a shutdown type role. He was very good defensively and he has the offensive ability. He can make the little dish pass and has good hands. He won't be as big as his brother but he's still young." - John Williams, NHL Central Scouting
