    Has someone seen this guy play and could make a scouting report on him? How is his skating (speed, acceleration, agiliry, balance) ? How are his offensive skills, physical strenght, attitude, work ethics, etc ?

    Thanks a lot.

    fast and strong, but not the most agile, or smooth skater. physical agressive, runs through people. pretty heavy shot, physical specimen.

    bulldozer, plain and simple. He has a great power forward game, and he is only getting bigger. Should be mid first round pick. I would take him over Forney and Foligno who both should get drafted around the same range.

    my brother played against him and said if hes 6, 200, he seems alot bigger by the way he plays. he just said he seems so much bigger then his size, and is strong as an ox. he said when hes done growing; think anthony stewart 6-1, 230.

    Shades of Dustin Brown in this likely top 10 pick IMO.

    So you would say that he's more like Brown than Setoguchi? More skill than McArdle?

    Reportedly loves to work in the weight room (From Bucs broadcaster). Athletically gifted kid, hard worker. Competent but not an agile skater, but has good top end speed. Can run through people, but does not fight. Good finisher with a hard shot but also can pass very well. Without a doubt the best 2006 eligable talent in the USHL.
