His most praised asset may be his hockey IQ. He’s smart, has great hands and sees the ice exceptionally well. However, his foot speed is an issue. As ESPN’s Corey Pronman notes, "He's not slow, but he's certainly not a top-end speedster, either." That can leave him exposed in the defensive zone sometimes. That’s made some scouts question his defensive game, but it may be less a matter of work ethic and defensive responsibility as becoming a better skater and learning to work inside his skill set.
