My concern however is that he does not appear to possess any key "pure goal scorer" attributes. No standout shot, no standout stickhandling and no stand out hockey sense, nor does he seem to be making those arond him better. Just a nose for the net that is clearly exposing his less physically developed jr opposition but will not guarantee goal scoring success against stronger and faster players at the NHL level.
A prototypical 2nd line winger at this point
Hmm from what I've seen of him, in camp and the few games I get to see from the dub, his shot is definitely a standout attribute.
