Scouting Report
Is starting to translate the offensive skills that made him the No. 4 pick in the 2014 NHL Draft into the kind of production that was expected as he enters the prime of his career. Can line up either at center or on the wing. He has the ability to play a good two-way game with plenty of fire and tenacity. May never live up to early expectations that were likely too high to begin with.
Long Range Potential: Solid, feisty forward and secondary scoring option.
