Great skater and makes a very nice first pass. I just remember him having some trouble in his own zone with shifty forwards. Thanks for your input.
When I saw him that didn't seem to be much of an issue. He could but the breaks on easily to cover guys like Nick Shore and Luke Salazar who were extremely shifty. When he has the puck he's not agile but he's fast and can easily pick an open piece of ice to blast through and find someone to get the puck to.

His shot from the point is pretty terrible. A few times he resorted to using a wrister that went wide... He will not be a goalscorer but his passing is already NHL level. They're tape-to-tape through traffic... It's insanity.
