'21-'22Mississauga Steelheads6821305114170.75

At his first pro camp this fall he has shown he is capable of challenging for a job in the middle six of an NHL roster. It's possible he could see spot duty as a second line option in time.
Fantastic awareness. Keeps the play in front of him. Rarely out of position in any zone. Excellent in the face-off circle. Equal success on both sides of the ice. He turns his stick over to take draws on his weak side. The kind of player who can be trusted in all situations. Better than secondary scoring upside. Not shy. He battles in the hard areas.

At the World Juniors (Edmonton) he struggled to produce the offense he is capable of
Board battle was sound. He opened up space for line mates and extended plays.
Continues to show willingness to get to the crease area and cause distraction
Transporting the puck and finding open space to direct shots on goal was a challenge at the WJC
Looking for him to reset come the fall at Minnesota
