HIGHLIGHTS
1-time U18 WJC Bronze Medal 1

A big, strong two-way forward with good net drive and a high level of compete. His speed should be noted, as he constantly uses it to gain leverage on defenders. Propels himself into hits, and is very effective in a bang-and-crash role. Very good positionally and always recognizes where the puck is and where it will be in the next few seconds. Has natural offensive instincts around the net and conceals the puck well against goalies in close. Defensively, very aware and active; uses the boards to his advantage and actively takes away shooting and passing lanes. Transitioning to offence quickly is something that he needs to work on, as he can get caught up in his own zone for a prolonged amount of time. [EP]
