Draft History
Drafted in 2019 NHL Draft: 1st Round, 23rd Overall Pick by New York New York
DraftSite Scouting Report So far he has had an injury-riddle past that probably has set him back in his development. Projects as a two-way winger capable of sliding over and playing some centre. High on-ice IQ, reading the situations and reacting in all three zones. Displays a high skill level and creativity and does so many things well with really good jump with or without the biscuit. Plays in all situations and is counted on at the games end to help hold the lead. Breaks up attacks and quickly initiates the transition counter strikes. Will take possession and go end-to-end, beat a defender wide and drop the leg to split the defenders into the middle. Hasn’t shown he is an overly physical player, but that may be due to his post injury anxieties. This youngster will get plenty of scrutiny and might surprise by going off the draft board a whole lot earlier than expected.
