Highlights
2-time U20 WJC Bronze Medal 2
1-time Olympic Bronze Medal 1
1-time NHL Stanley Cup Champion 1

A good two-way forward with an excellent understanding of the game. A very good skater with good playmaking skills. A good passer who needs to develop the physical side of his game. Can play in any forward position. Works hard, useful as a penalty killer. (Matias Strozyk)
