I haven't watched him play live myself but have talked to a few people about him. Someone that follows Cushing Academy told me he oozes potential. He has exceptional vision and good hands. He's a good skater and likes to play the perimeter. He's a playmaker and very unselfish but contributes with goals as well. Great attitude and very teachable. Coaches love him. Rumours about attitude problems aren't true. He also compared him to Sean Couturier and says he'll be an impact player this upcoming season. Top 5 talent in this draft, some could argue top 3.

He will be a top 6 (maybe top 3) forward for Drummondville next season.
His offensive upside is tremendous. He will score some highlight reel goals this season.
He isn't a great skater, and that could end up being his downfall (as far as NHL upside). It will be interesting to see how he does in the Q, which is a much better skating league than the New England preps.
Keep us posted on how he looks in camp. I hope he plays well for you guys.
