Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Possesses uncanny vision and creativity. Skates very well for a 6-4 center. Has excellent hand/eye coordination and a goal-scorer's touch.

Weaknesses: 

Will occasionally take matters into his own hands, which penalizes his team because he's needed on the ice. Has yet to reach expectations on offense.
