A zippy forward who shows speed when chasing pucks in the offensive zone, he plays fast with the puck on his stick, too. He moves his hips through his stride to keep defenseman on their heels and make plays to open teammates, which helps create scoring chances in the offensive zone. He can really change directions on a dime due to his solid edge work. His speed forces opposing defenseman to make decisions quicker and helps give his team an edge. He has a quick release on his shot but could use a little bit more power to make it more dangerous consistently, though he always finds a way to put the puck in the net. He constantly finds himself in scoring positions due to his motor and he uses his momentum well to evade defenders. His slick hands and skill with the puck are always on display. His head is always on a swivel both on the forecheck and the backcheck and he is a solid decision maker with the puck. He is solid through the neutral zone on defense and he uses an active stick to take away passing lanes. He isn’t a big guy and doesn’t always take the body but shows a willingness to try. He does a good job of tying up players in front of his own net, but he could be a little more competitive when it comes to those 50/50 battles for the puck. Overall, a dangerous player with the right tools to his game.
