A responsible, reliable, and competitive two-way center who has the ability to impact his team in all areas of the ice with excellent decisions and energy. A relentless worker who can move his feet at a high speed, he always keeps moving his feet and he uses his stick to try to cut passing lanes or takeaway pucks. He shows a willingness to put efforts in all zones and play a simple, efficient game, but he is undersized and lacking strength. He often gets outmuscled by opponents. In some games, he looks like a good playmaker, and in others, he is too passive in the offensive zone. Offensively, he plays a simple game constituted of excellent decisions, superb positioning, and relentless intensity, but he possesses below average puck skills. He does impress with his defensive game, supporting his rearguards down low with ruthless corner battles, intercepting passes in neutral zone with a skilled stick and great anticipation, and repeatedly retrieving to his zone to block rushes and recover loose pucks. Although he reads attacks quickly, gets caught lacking foot speed to stay with his man. Not a lot of upside in his game at the moment, but perhaps his great work ethic and two-way game could allow him to make the jump to the next level. He will also need to add strength to his frame, so that he can win more puck battles.
