DraftSite Scouting Report Orlando, Florida born talent who many are calling the next Patrick Kane. His parents both played the game and his father is an ex-Bruins coach and minor pro coach, whose originally from the Mississauga area. The top-line centre in the US program who gets things done with strong hands, terrific vision and quick feet. Great anticipation and the ability to hold pucks on his stick no matter where he ventures. He steers pucks through traffic; his terrific vision and edging make opponents scramble to where the play is going to open into a solid look. He can come to a dead stop, watch a crowd converge on his space, and wire a puck to the open spot of net. Has a terrific shot when he uses it too. Some think he is always attempting inside moves, refusing to get funneled to the periphery and his gambling style might be seen as too abrasive. May project to wing, but we like him as a smaller pivot at this juncture. He is such a dynamic, fast-paced player despite not being the big strong powerful centre teams look for.

Shifty, slippery and dangerous. Off the charts hockey IQ. More of a playmaker rather than a goal scorer, he is an elite set up man. He is like a center version of Patrick Kane with even more speed.
