SCOUTING REPORT
Assets: Is an outstanding offensive talent, plus he owns a tremendous frame with plenty of projection. Knows how to use his size to his advantage and is great at protecting and maintaining possession of the puck. His shot is also lethal.
Flaws: Needs to fill out his frame in order to physically dominate at the highest level. Also needs to be able to handle raised expectations, since the spotlight will shine brightly upon him throughout his playing career.
Career Potential: Talented franchise center with huge upside.
