Scouting Report
The undrafted forward was born in Germany but came to North America in his late teens and excelled in college hockey before turning pro. Plays a mature, smart game and can make an impact even when he is not putting up points because of his play away from the puck. He is a decent playmaker who is strong on his skates and has a little bit of finish, but he lacks the offensive dynamism that would make him more than a role player.
Long Range Potential: Speedy two-way forward.
