He's most certainly a mix of both. It's all about his ability to find open ice. As long as he's finding open ice and pouncing on loose pucks, he's able to get shots off and take advantage of his quick, accurate shot. Right now in junior, he's having no trouble getting open ice and finding loose pucks, and hence his almost GPG pace so far this year. If he can find his way to the dirty areas around the net, and find those loose pucks at the next level, his hands and release will serve him best scoring goals. If he can't find as much open ice at the next level, though, he may be forced to look to distribute the puck more, but he's more than capable of playing that part of a scoring line as well.
