Highlights
1-time Hlinka Gretzky Cup Bronze Medal 1
1-time Hlinka Gretzky Cup Most Points 1

A highly skilled playmaking center with first-rate "hockey sense" and puckhandling ability. Creates energy through being an offensively dominant presence. Plays an up-tempo game that can catch a lot of defencemen off guard; excellent skater. Will need to gain size and strength; otherwise, with his skillset, there is nothing barring him from becoming a prolific scorer at the next level. (Curtis Joe, EP 2014)
