Scouting Report
The very first No. 1 overall pick in the NHL Draft hailing from Switzerland (2017) has all the skills and drive to be an elite center, though he is more of a two-way player than merely a scorer. Is a good skater who is very creative with the puck and has a sneaky-good shot. He is very willing to go to the net, his play away from the puck is improving and his leadership skills are already apparent. His height is fine but he needs to get a lot stronger to take the kind of pounding he faces on a nightly basis. Injuries can be an issue for him.
Long Range Potential: Talented, creative two-way center and team leader.
