Bittner (wearing 9 in dark blue) scored this goal during the 2013 Ivan Hlinka tournament.
The team that drafts Bittner will love his size. He's 6'4" and probably will get taller. He will be huge by the time he's ready for the NHL. With his size, he can muscle in close to the net or fire off shots from farther away. In addition to being tall, he has diverse offensive abilities that allow him to get into scoring areas, and he also has a good top skating speed. He can use his size along the boards and his speed when he's given open ice. His skillset will make him an exceptional NHL power forward. Even when Bittner is not the player on the ice who scores, he causes chaos because he's large, and defensemen must account for him, which creates space for his smaller teammates. Bittner is frequently a pest in the goalie's face in his teammates' highlight videos.
The scouts at Hockey Prospect like the diversity of his skill set:
