He's a big guy, but gets around the ice pretty well. I'm not a great judge of "elite" skating abilities, but I would say he's an above average skater for this size. And again, non-stop motor...

It's tough to say if he has the hockey IQ to be anything more than a bottom 6 guy, but he understands his role and plays it well in Erie. Habs did their homework on this guy, could turn out really well for us.
Thanks for your input, really appreciated to hear from someone who's actually seen him play. Makes me feel better about the pick for sure.

I bet Vancouver would have drafted him if we didn't. Damn I hate them
