Owns plenty of drive to the net. Likes to use his size in the offensive zone, and is strong on the puck at all times. Isn't afraid of mixing it up.
Must learn how to play in control, so as to avoid serious injuries over time, and be more consistent. Needs refinement in his ability to finish off plays.
Top six winger.
