1-time U20 WJC Bronze Medal 1
1-time World Championship Bronze Medal 1
1-time NCAA (Championship) Winner 1
1-time NL Champion 1
1-time USHL Clark Cup Champion 1

Two-way agitating forward with decent size. Pretty good skater and versatile enough to play both as a center or left wing. Inconsistent offensively and more of a checking-line player.
