Position Center
Shoots Left
DraftSite Scouting Report Six foot thick centreman who has a strong first step and bursts that glide him into the soft areas on the attack. Good balanced skater with a bowlegged base but it doesn’t deter him from controlling the middle of the ice in three zones responsibly. A very soft passer who is slick in his movements before he dishes. Displays fast hands and quick burst explosions as he comes out from the corners and wall.
Was Podkolzin’s centre at the Five Nations Tourney in the summer. Fights hard to maintain space in blue paint area. Strong middle zone defender. Was one of the more noticable players in the World Junior Challenge with his effort, and slick opportunistic passing including his slap passes.
