Additional Information Got an early taste in the "Dub" when injuries befell the forwards on Saksatoon, and showed off his competitive nature and was able to set up and score goals as a 16 year old, and displays smarts, size ,good feetand a 200 foot commitment. Not a speedster, but has a great stick and soft hands as a high-end playmaker. Can control the pace and the play.Another wing-centre who is very strong on his skates and can move with above average speed while he maintains possession using his soft hands to find open line mates when he has the puck, and quickly ghost into quiet soft areas to receive returns and scoring looks. When watching a guy this big, you think he is going to get held up but he seems to keep driving effortless keeping the defenders away from the puck with his long reach and staying in motion while he supports the play. He avoids attackers with side-stepping and a quick stick. He follows the action but the action tends to follow him too. Strong in so many phases of the game already, he is always close to attackers in his end nudging close deterring their advance. I think there is upside as a pro scorer, but many of his goals will continue to come with plays he started where he positioned himself between the circles and wasn’t stopped. Plenty of room to imagine him as blossoming as a scorer as well as set-up guy. May project as an NHL centre. Big guy who gets in close and difficult to move out from the front.
