Talent Analysis:
Scout 1: a solid skater .. possesses a fluid stride, as well as solid first-step quickness and an above-average agility .. solid top-end speed .. needs to become stronger in his yet very thin lower-body and upgrade on balance .. possesses solid stickhandling skills .. capable of quick nifty moves .. an active forechecker .. uses numerous ways how to steal the puck from the opponent .. uses both sides of the stick when passing .. should cover the puck better .. a playmaking forward .. shows a tendency to pass the puck rather than fire it .. capable of smart plays which surprise the opponents .. can't avoid moments where he overhandles the puck in order to make the 'perfect' play .. a solid awareness of his linemates .. should upgrade on the accuracy of the fast-released wrist shot .. slap shot needs to be harder .. occasionally careless when finishing the scoring chance in-close but possesses the crisp moves which bring goaltenders out of position .. showed willingness to perform in traffic and play where it hurts .. doesn't drive the net hard enough .. should use his body to a bigger extent .. gets knocked off the puck by bigger opponents .. returns back to his own end .. capable of blocking the passing lanes and limiting the options of the opposition but should be more consistent in this asset .. a factor in the faceoff circle, but could use more strength to compete with opponents.
