Scouting Report
The second player taken in the 2019 NHL Draft is a big forward who has all the tools for stardom, but is still trying to put it all together as he heads toward the prime of his NHL career. He has an excellent combination of size, skill and hockey sense, and he succeeded playing against men while still a teenager. Has to get stronger and learn how to use that strength. Also has to cope with Type 1 diabetes and celiac disease.
Long Range Potential: Big, talented winger with upside.
