An all-offensive player who is aggressive in his approach to the transition game, he drives his offensive game with his quick ands and feet. Really strong at playing off the puck in the offensive zone, finding himself time and space in the high-danger areas. His skating is a bit up and down, he’s a smaller guy so it looks like he has to work twice as hard to get up and down the nice because of his small stature but he’s constantly moving his feet. His size will cause some concern for him because you can sense that he’s rushed when under pressure. When opposing players close in on him, particularly in Armstrong’s defensive zone you can see that he rushes his decision or just chips the puck off his stick. His mindset in the offensive zone and defensive zone are polar opposites at times, while aggressive on offense he is a little tentative in the defensive aspects of the game, only exerting himself in his own zone when the play is directly in front of him. His development from a rough rookie WHL season to a solid second year campaign was evident, his production took a big jump this past season and if he can continue this type of growth there’s a chance his offense could translate to a higher level.
