Scouting Report
The first-round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft is a power forward with good hands and a pretty well-rounded game. He still has to learn to use his size more effectively, which should come as he moves into the prime of his career. He uses his stick well defensively but has to work on his positioning. His biggest issues are a lack of ideal speed and game-to-game consistency.
Long Range Potential: Inconsistent but talented power forward.
