My older bro coached Pete when he was in atom and peewee, he is not the fastest guy around, but his skating is decent, he makes up for the rest by using his long reach and size, he would be considered a defensive dman, an NHL comparable would be a guy like Adam mcquaid
He would get called up from peewee to play for my bantam team in Lake Bonavista. He is a very smart kid on and off the ice. He has always been a good skater but seemed to shy away from contact of any sort. It will be interesting to see if he can adjust to the bigger, faster players in the NHL, because he has struggled doing that in the WHL.
