He presents as a meat and potatoes, straightline player however there is an understated intelligence in his game that allows him to always be in the right spots on the ice. His skating ability is a knock as he struggles to make plays through weight shifts and his edges kill momentum, but he is hard on the forecheck and uses his size and strength to separate the opposition from possession. He makes quick plays with the puck on his stick that can alleviate pressure and uses his body to protect the puck, showing some potential to be a power player as he develops a small area game, which has been slow to come. He is not looking to inflict physical damage, rather he uses his size and pace as a tool to cause turnovers. His head is always up with the puck on his stick and while he doesn’t possess elite creativity, he is a plus passer who excels at keeping the play moving. He uses his frame very effectively along the wall and uses his strength to buy time for his teammates to provide an outlet. He is an asset in his own zone where he plays low providing support to his defense. Overall, he is a thick kid who plays an honest blue-collar style of game, but doesn’t stand out in any one area.
