A big American boy who won the US Under 16 title with Compuware last season. His skating is deceptive for a big kid. Has good hands and likes the gritty game. He gets into the dirty areas, wins battles along the boards and works very hard in his own zone. He has offensive upside and with his work ethic he will put up points.
In 33 games for the Whalers, he scored 3 goals and added 8 assists with 4 PIM. He too will be asked to, and will deliver, more offence in the absence of Tyler Seguin.
