Breakdown

One of the newest Vegas Golden Knights prospects is currently in the midst of his journey to the NHL. After being drafted by the Vegas Golden Knights this past season in the fourth-round, has spent most of his season playing in the QMJHL for the Charlottetown Islanders.

After getting drafted in the fourth-round there wasn’t much hope for him making an impact in year one, but there’s talent there. I see that now.

In his first season with the Charlottetown Islanders he played in 31 games. In those 31 games that he’s played in, he totaled 11 goals and 24 assists for a total of 35 points. Which is a point per game which I’d say is pretty good.

He plays the game with great intuition and has a great feel for playmaking and getting creative. His passing ability really takes his game to another level. His scoring ability is something that shouldn’t go underrated. I mean he is definitely a playmaker first and fore-most but he can score when needed too.
