It's dificult to give you a proper assesment as you guys are going to use him as a C and we are used to seing him on the LW.

But the short version:

He is very fast and shifty, has great hands and does not mind heavy traffik, he will stickhandle as often as he can.

He has a great wrister and he is very elusive. Im not sure what you can expect of him as a C, but I would say his playing style is closer to that of Drouin than MacKinnon.

This is the only online vid of him. It's his first goal in the NLA as a 16 year old.. Shows a little of his speed, shiftyness and shot.
