Fantasy Summary

A play-driving offensive center who plays a solid 200-foot game. A dual-threat because he can make plays and finish them. Great skating ability combined with high-end puck-skills makes him a threat all over the ice. Needs to work on his consistency and discipline. Projects to become a very good top-six center.

Easily the Isles’ top prospect, albeit in a shallow pool, he parlayed size, vision and playmaking ability to earn a three-year, entry-level deal.
