Scouting Analysis: According to hockeysfuture, "He makes smart plays defensively and good first passes out of the zone. He also has a booming slapshot, but his overall offensive game still needs refinement."

SB Nation says,"More technical aspects of his skating could be improved upon...He would be the kind of player you'd throw on to protect a lead or to kill an important penalty."
