Draft History
Drafted in 2019 NHL Draft: 5th Round, 149th Overall Pick by Washington Washington
DraftSite Scouting Report A premium import addition who was thought to be a first rounder after the scouts got their looks in London. After all he is surrounded by a strong club that plays all styles.
Highly skilled centre who already is playing his first North American season with The Knights this season. Displays a high skill level in all areas, and is ultra-effective playing at a high speed pace. Dynamic as a scorer and playmaker, he plays a 200 foot game and exhibits a level of hockey IQ and maturity. London's strong line-up has him relegated to left wing and fourth line duties in his initial North American season, but will eventually settle in to his centre position. The adjustment period is far from over as he has only managed 12 goals/ 30 points in 59 regular season games but did manage to score two more goals (4 pints) in the OHL playoffs. He has an excellent shot but he at this juncture, looks like a perimeter player, afraid to play the game in the high traffic greasy areas. Has a physical tools and a frame that will allow him to add muscle and girth. So the question here is, when does an NHL team call is name? They'll hope hopes next season in London he gets top six minutes and shows us he is in fact the battle zone player we thought he was. Stay tuned.
