He's a young man who isn't even NHL Draft eligible until next year but is already in his second season of junior hockey. We really like his offensive instincts from the back end and his ability to possess the puck and make plays up the rink. He's a Michigan State commit for the fall of 2021 meaning he's a two-year player for the Musketeers and we're looking forward to having him in the lineup Friday night."
