Just saw him for the first time last night.

His lack of speed is quite obvious and personally, I didn't find him very strong. However, what I do like about him is that he has above-average offensive skills combined with a high hockey IQ.

Not only can he make smart passes, he has a decent shot that makes him quite a versatile offensive weapon near the half wall. He can make quick little plays down low or to the blueline, or sneak in and wait for a shot.

However, its hard to project him because there aren't many (if any) undersized NHL forwards that lack both strength AND speed. They either have both or just one.

Again, only one game, so maybe he had an average game, but he's a talented player, just not sure if it will translate into the NHL.
