Dynamic center who can skate, shoot and pass, he is good at reading the ice and recognizing where his teammates are in all three zones. He creates space for them by using his size and puck protection and then often sets them up with a nice passes. He utilizes an up-tempo, speed-blazing, north-south skating style. Fast while playing to his size, he uses his speed to beat opponents to the puck. When he has the puck, he protects it well. Shows the ability to handle the puck at high speed and likes to set up shop in front of the opposing goalie and put rebounds into the back of the net. Strong on the puck and attacks the dirty areas as a puck carrier. Has good size to command space throughout the rink and isn’t afraid to make a hit to regain possession and always finishes his checks. He’s also surprisingly light on his feet and can get around the ice with good speed and some finesse as well. Uses his stick to poke check pucks effectively and create turnovers defensively. Puts in the effort in his own end and throws his weight around. Hard to knock off his skates in board battles. Already a 200-foot player, his upside is endless and he plays with determination, grit and energy. Already a handful for opposing players and will only get better as he matures.
