I don't know if he'll be much of a hitter as he has such a slender frame but he will take the body. What I like about his physical game is his compete level, he wants the puck and will go to the dirty areas to get it and often come away with the puck, but he also will carry the puck into the heavy traffic areas to score. I think he would work well in a system with an aggressive forecheck.
