Scouting Report
Few players have his combination of size, skill and speed. He has an excellent hockey IQ and can make plays at high speed. His one-time shot makes him a major threat on the power play, and he uses his size well to protect the puck. Is already among the NHL's best players and still has room to improve as he enters the prime of his career.
Long Range Potential: Elite scoring forward.
