Hes a big body that can score in any fashion. Hes a big game, big moment player. Clutch. Has good skating ability for his size, and has good hands and a great shot.

He was offered a pro contract from TB last year but decided to finish school and graduate. He graduates this year and Im sure will sign the contract now. I wouldnt be surprised one bit if he made TB out of camp. ESPECIALLY, if they move Malone.

Overall projection I could see him as a 1st/2nd line tweener that can put up 50-60 points a season. Hes a very smart player as well.

Hes really underrated IMO, and has a lot to bring to the table.

Its hard for me to think of any comparables, Ive never been good at that.
