He is more physical than Taylor Hall. He shattered the glass checking some guy 2-3 inches taller than him and is already a rock solid 190+ pounds.

His shot is explosive. And accurate. Probably better than anyone on our team (Eberle included).

He is not tall.

He did suffer a concussion late in the season cutting to the inside of the offensive zone.

Very high end skills. Not quite as fast as Hall, but probably a better pure goal scorer.

I don't think he'd be comfortable playing C but you never know. He's a winger. Youtube some videos of him.
