Well, I have known Mario for quite some time now, Ive seen some games of him playing here.
During the summers we have played Inline Hockey in the highest league together aswell. He's a great kid with some serious hockey skills.

Assets. - I would say that he's one of the best skaters I've seen in his age. (really, really fast)
He has very, very smoth hands aswell, and his stickhandling is sometimes jawdropping.
His work ethic in the offensive zone is great, and he is not the type of guy who backs off when its getting ugly.
The thing is that he's not afraid to get his nose dirty either, he would do allmost anything to get the puck in the net.

Flaws. - Need to pass the puck more, and try to read the game better. He lacks a bit in the defensive department aswell. (and btw. he's not that big either.)

All in all. - He's still very young and I think he has a very high potential to become a good, solid NHL-player. But that would be up to him, he still has a very long way to go before he's there.

Well, thats just my 2 cents.
