“I like him; he's going to be good. I like his on-ice attitude; he's got a bit of an edge to him. He uses his size. He also looks to be a take-charge guy. Every time I saw Red Deer, I'm looking at the 1991s (birth year), but he jumped out every game.”

Red Deer Rebels head coach Jesse Wallin

“He’s certainly a key guy for our team. He’s still a young guy at 17-years-old, but he plays against the top guys in our league. He’s very solid defensively, he’s a good puck mover, he makes a good first pass, and he’s got a real good head for the game. He’s intelligent, he keeps things simple, and he’s starting to show some bite as he gets stronger and get more confident. We’re starting to see that more in the second half of the season. That edge is going to come out more in his game. I think there is some offensive upside, I don’t think he’s ever going to be a real top-end offensive guy at the next level, but he’s got a good shot. He sees the ice well enough that he’s going to contribute that way for us for the next few years.”
