Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Is skilled and polished. Rarely makes mistakes with the puck and is also a sound positional forward. Oozes offensive potential. Excels in shootouts.

Weaknesses: 

Isn't very big, and can be intimidated by big NHL defensemen. Is considered 'soft' by NHL standards, and must get stronger.
