Each week day, we'll take a look at three prospects and get Panthers Director of Amateur Scouting Scott Luce's opinion on each of them.

WHAT CENTRAL SCOUTING SAYS

Plays with a lot of energy and has quick release on his shot. Constantly moving. He is offensive minded, but plays well defensively, too. Made huge improvements from previous season.
