Highlights
1-time World Championship Bronze Medal 1

A large right-handed center who reads the game well. Plays aggressively and gets a lot of penalties. Always able to find room for his teammates. A two-way center who plays well with and without the puck. Has a decent shot and good passing game. A reliable point scorer who is tall and heavy but skates well. (Matias Strozyk)
