He is a big guy but was passed over in the CHL because up until a year and a half ago he was under 5'10. He is a shifty player, has great hands and offensive instincts. He generally doesn't use his body and isn't amazing defensively but some time in the NCAA should help him it did wonders for Gaudreau. He was the youngest person in his draft and will still be 18 when this years draft happens. The thought is he would have challenged for a top 10/top 5 pick this year if he had been a few days younger.
If he reaches his potential he is a poor mans Joe Thornton (aka the center we have always needed) if not he is most likely a Kyle Brodziak type of player.
