Redline Report #15 overall:

"Has skill, intensity adb big shot. Love his net drive"

Predicted to go #19 to Tampa.

Summary:

Not tall, but thick and powerfully built through the upper body, and very strong on the puck. Excellent puck control in tight spaces. Can create separation with power moves coming out of the corners and drives straight to the crease. Tough to contain; will bull his way to net with checkers deaped on his back and does a great job keeping his feet moving in traffic. Excellent vision and creativity. Cane make touch saucer passes through traffic. Gains the offensive zone easily and beats d-men off the rush with slick moves. Very good skater with speed and acceleration. Patient with the puck in scoring territory and has a laser wrist shot with scoring touch. Doesn't initiate much contact but takes hits to make plays and is always involved in high traffic. Gritty and determined. Competes hard on the backcheck, stealing pucks and starting quick-strike counterattacks.

Projection: 2nd line scorer on a contending team
Style Compares To: Patrick Sharp

AW's take...Steal!!
