Scouting Report

Strengths: 

A natural goal-scorer with nice hands and instincts. Owns a good frame that projects well to the wing position in the NHL. Not afraid to mix it up a bit.

Weaknesses: 

Must show he can bring the focus needed to improve his game. His lanky frame needs some filling out. Could stand to pass the puck more often.

Projection: 

Goal-scoring depth forward.
