Possesses an absolutely incredible wrist shot but not much else. Decent skater, good speed but very awkward looking. Don't use his size at all as he doesn't go to the front of the net or work along the boards despite usually getting rewarded with a good scoring chance when he does. He also gets moved off the puck very easily and doesn't really compete very hard to get it back. I question his compete level at times.

He's full of tools like shot, size, and slick hands, but he has some serious work to do on almost every aspect of the game. Clearly lots of upside, but very, very raw and is a long-term project.

Speaking of low compete level...that seems to be a trend among OHL prospects this year. Zadorov, Rychel, Dickinson, Kujawinski, Bailey, Lodge, and Harper are all fairly highly though of OHL eligibles who take way too many shifts off for my liking.
