  • Scouting Report

    One of the most talked about prospects in awhile, he was granted exceptional player status by Hockey Canada, and became just the third player to be granted the draft exemption behind New York Islanders forward John Tavares and current Barrie Colts defenceman Aaron Ekblad...

    The US born centre may not be as good as the top guy but he sure looks like a generational player in his own right...
