He's a crafty two-way centre, quick skating, good vision, and a fantastic work ethic. He has great hockey IQ and a nice quick shot. Scouts had been saying he should work on bulking up (was around 165 last year) and he took the advice, working his way up to around 180.
Statistically, he has 15 points (8g 7a) in 6 games with Edina this season. While playing 2 games for Muskegon, alongside his two brothers, in the USHL he had 3 assists.
Personally, I think he'll be this years big riser... Kid is phenomenal, he's just "looked down on" because of his age.
From what I've heard, he's a great interview with NHL types- shows great character and leadership qualities. "Gets it" in terms of how much work he has to put in to make it at higher levels.
His coaches (Edina, Muskegon, and USNTDP) have all raved about him on and off the ice.
He'll finish out the year in Muskegon once his MNHS season ends.
