Scouting Report
The first-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft is still trying to find his niche in the big league. He skates well but has yet to come close to replicating the offensive numbers he put up in junior hockey and the AHL, and risks being recast into a lower role as a checker or energy player if that does not change soon. Consistency continues to be a major issue as he heads into the prime of his career.
Long Range Potential: Inconsistent two-way forward.
