“He actually seems to work better in traffic than he does without it. His primary weapon is his ability to protect the puck and roll off of players. His hands are very good in close but sometimes it’s the move that he doesn’t make that is the most effective – he causes so many defenders to bite on the move that they think he’s going to make…it’s pretty uncanny. His use of slight body misdirection and his unique ability to control the puck opposite of his own body weight is remarkable.” – (HockeyProspect, Black Book)
