An offensively gifted center who is an offensive threat with the puck on his stick. He’s an agile skater with good edge work that can rapidly change direction and transition with the play. While he has solid foot speed and good power in his strides, he needs to work on his lower body strength to increase his acceleration though he can create speed through his transitions. Has soft hand with the ability to make nice saucer passes and makes smart decisions when pressured. His shot is a bit underwhelming and could use more power, but he does possess a quick release and a willingness to shoot from anywhere in the offensive zone. He has a knack for finding open areas in the offensive zones and relies on his awareness to fight for space in open areas. He could put more effort into his forecheck and can’t always keep up with the physical play as he doesn’t seem to initiate contact often enough. Defensively, his game could use work as his occasional lapses in positioning could mean he is better suited as a winger at higher levels.  Sometimes he gets caught with his feet planted in one position. He does have the ability to get open for his defenseman to put a pass back up the ice for an offensive rush. Overall, he seems to communicate well with his teammates, often dictating the play and isn’t afraid to get into a puck battle along the boards with his high compete level.
