Talent Analysis:
Scout 1: an average skater who doesn't impress with his propulsion...could use a smoother stride and a better first-step quickness...isn't overly fast on his skates and has trouble with flashy opposition...average top-end speed...solid balance and lower-body strength...more of a defensive-minded blueliner but progressed in the willingness to join the rush and perform in the opposing slot...average hockey sense doesn't enable him to use a precise timing of his offensive raids...decent presence in his own zone...a dilligent combatant along the boards and in front of the crease but isn't a menacing hitter...can make his body to his advantage but tends to loose position when going for a hit...an adequate force on penalty killing units...willing to sacrifice his body to block opposing shots...doesn't make many glaring positional mistakes but could read the developing plays more faster...prone to odd wrong pinching...limited offensive upside thanks to an unimpressive offensive vision...sometimes hesitant to make a quick outlet pass...average puckhandling skills...tends to dump the puck under pressure...prone to mistakes when making a long outlet pass...unleashes a heavy slap shot with average accuracy...confident in his shooting ability.
