Bottom line he's a 6"2 forward who move well enough and has some upside offensively. We also lack some depth on LW after MaxPac. Plus he's American so Timmins must be a fan
He's already north of 200 pounds as well. His shot doesn't look terribly impressive but there were a couple good wristers in there and he seems to know where to go for scoring opportunities judging from the video.

He seems to have good breakaway speed as well. Any comments on his physical play?
