Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

Creates a lot of excitement with his terrific puck skills and offensive instincts. But unfortunately, just as much of that buzz centres on the attitude and his, shall we say, less than ideal concept of what a good teammate should be. He’s a dynamic game-breaker from the blue line with exceptional puck skills. Has no panic in his game. Has his head up at all times scanning for
plays. Sees the ice extremely well. His outlets are crisp tape-to-tape. Tremendous on the PP, where he can act as either QB or triggerman. Gains the zone with ease, walks the line to create shooting/passing lanes, and can fire bullets or make creative slap-passes. Has to learn when to dump puck in - makes costly turnovers trying to force plays. In a weak draft with so few talented rearguards, we don’t see any way he won’t be selected in the first round. But talk about buyer beware… (Red Line Report)

Strengths: 

Is a tremendous asset on offense from the back end and can put a lot of pressure on the opposition due to supreme offensive instincts. Skates very smoothly and can be a valuable point man on the power play.

Weaknesses: 

Has defensive deficiencies that need to be corrected if he is to avoid the label of 'power-play specialist' at the highest level. Is somewhat undersized as well, so he needs to add strength to better handle bigger forwards.

Projection: 

Offensively gifted, defensively-challenged defenseman with upside.
