A small but hard working forward that plays with a lot of buzz and creativity. Good skater with quick first steps and great balance, which helps him keep the puck against bigger and stronger opponents. Low skating stance gives him great power in his strides and good balance, helping him fight through physical contact and use leverage to get to the dangerous areas in the offensive zone. He changes his direction and speed to go through tight defences, though he could use some work in the offensive zone without the puck. Excellent passer in the offensive zone, always seems to know exactly what he wants to do even before he has the puck. Will quickly spot passing lanes to give his teammates scoring chances. Can also put the puck into the net with his wrist shot, which has a good release and is very accurate; he isn’t afraid to shoot from anywhere below the faceoff circles. Smooth hands help him deke past opponents. Good at regular strength but thrives on the powerplay, where he can look very dominant from his position on the blue line. Works hard in his own zone and uses his stick well to cut off angles but can struggle along the boards during physical play due to his smaller stature. He works hard on the backcheck and is willing to support his defenders down low. Gaining strength and filling out his small frame will be a deciding factor in whether he can continue to produce offense at higher levels of competition.
