Draft History
Drafted in 2017 NHL Draft: 2nd Round, 40th Overall Pick by Florida Florida
Additional Information Smart undersized centre-forward with figure skater like control in his dashes and darts. A wizard with the puck due to his edge control, he can make the correct cut out of trouble. He utilizes his ability as a precise touch-passer to control which option he is going to with the biscuit. Defenders tend to back off out of respect for his ability camouflage his passes. He's constantly in motion, and eludes contact, slipping through coverage. High hockey IQ player who looks off coverage and blindly hits his intended target with the puck. He positions his small frame to protect himself and the puck and sometimes seems impossible to hit. Stops on a dime. Wins with a quick head, feet, and hands.
