Scouting Report

Strengths: 

What sets him apart is his awesome vision and uncanny ability to always find the open man. Can play center and wing. His great moves are an asset in one-on-one and shootout situations.

Weaknesses: 

Is somewhat smallish and frail, so he struggles to win more battles in the corners and avoid injuries. Doesn't shoot the puck nearly enough. Must continue to work on his play without the puck.

Projection: 

Creative playmaker with some upside.
