Yep. It's easy to see why the Pens liked him so much - he's a fast, fluid skater, great in transition, and has a very high offensive IQ.

But...he needs a lot of work. He's not strong or strong on his skates, he takes inefficient checking angles, and he wilted under hard forechecking pressure. A lot of that can be fixed with good coaching though, and he's smart enough to figure the rest out on his own.

Still, he's a project.
