Possibly the fastest and most dynamic players coming out of Manitoba. He produced 104 points this past season. Extremely slippery player, uber agile.  Change of direction and stops and starts as well as anyone.  First couple of steps are explosive.  There are moments where he picks up the puck in his defensive end and identifies every hole he will exploit in his transportation journey. Can stickhandle in a phone booth!!  Has the ability to elude multiple defenders in small spaces.  Has obvious scoring ability but is a pass first player. Draws opponents to him and will find the open man.  Wound up in the top 10 in scoring at the Jets AAA Challenge with 7-3-10 in 6 games. Makes the players around him better, doesn’t need anyone else to help in creating offensive chances.  His vision, puck skills, poise and creativity are all elite level.  Led the Manitoba bantam league in assists in the regular season then followed that up leading goals, assists and points in the city playoffs.  He does so many things well that it’s tough to pick out his best attribute, but I think his vision is amazing.  He can pick out a teammates stick through a scrum and hit it for re-direction goals like nobody else.
