Unfortunately, I haven't been able to see him play much this preseason. I'm sure some other members on this board haven't either. So it'd be great if those of you who've watched him can provide some analysis on his play style and potential ceiling.
From my limited viewings, he reminds me of Antoine Vermette, but with hopefully higher upside. Also sort of like a faster Toews with not-as-good hands. It seems like he's great at rushing the puck up the ice, but could work on his shot and strength in the corners. Is this accurate?
Them's fightin' words 'round here.
I'm inclined to agree with him needing to build some strength. While I think he could work on his shot, he's got solid accuracy and a good release. Could add more zip to it, though.
In addition, I've noticed that he has a tendency to overskate the puck. He's pretty good at erasing his "mistakes", though. Just needs to refine a few things.
