Scouting Report
The No. 3 pick in the 2018 NHL Draft has all the makings of an excellent offensive center. He is big (6'2"), talented and a good skater who should fill out and get stronger as he moves toward the prime of his career. Is a good playmaker who moves the puck well and has scoring instincts. Needs to shoot more to become the kind of scorer his talent suggests he can be. Is not as good on the wing because he needs space to be effective.
Long Range Potential: Talented, projectible center.
