Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Has a wiry body and plenty of shiftiness in the attacking zone. Can put up some points when he's on his game. Oozes talent and has NHL size to boot.

Weaknesses: 

Needs to use his big frame more to his advantage and bring forth a more consistent effort. Can take bad penalties, mainly due to laziness.

Projection: 

Inconsistent winger with loads of skill.
