Plumbing type winger that has a good shot and is a willing participant in anything. Supports the puck well on the boards and in tactful, practical manner. Does good work on the cycle. Errs on the side of caution defensively and sees the game pretty well when defending. Offensively he's not a terribly creative thinker and he might grow out of that a little bit, but he's not going to be a full-fledged, open-ice dangler. Interesting skating stride that lends itself to some somewhat unpredictable results. He can get around the ice fine, but he lacks top speed and his first step is inconsistent. He loses his edge a lot on turns of even moderate tightness.
Likely potential: Bottom-six energy winger, like Matt Martin
High ceiling: Complementary goal-scorer, "glue guy", like Bryan Bickell
