Talent Analysis
Gritty, hard-nosed center with a solid skating stride who will mix it up with anyone and can contribute a bit on the scoresheet. At his best when wreaking havoc on the forecheck and creating loose pucks for his linemates. Has decent size, could turn into a solid center who can dominate in the faceoff circle and on the forecheck.
Future
He could develop into a gritty forward capable of playing on the third or fourth line.
