I peg him for a 3rd line monster of a center. A guy who has second line skills all day long but is such a solid two way player that he is the kind of player that you trust 100% to run your third line.
Hes really good in the corners and while I wouldn't call him a big league hitter I will say that he doesnt shy away from physical play. I bet he develops that aspect of his game in the pro's. He has better than average puck control. Needs to work on his play in front of the net a bit but that will come. He isn't afraid of it butI think he could use a bit more sand in there.
Such a solid character guy. Fits right in with MR types. His QoC rating is an 8+ so that says how much the org likes him. I think he is going to be a really good all around energy type who you want to have out there in the most critical situations.
Give him time and direction and he looks really good.
Not great but just as solid as they come. The kind of player you need to win.
TG nailed it. I've seen shore play dozens of times. I think he'll be Stoll's replacement at third line C when the time is right.
