NHL Central Scouting's Blair MacDonald

"He's probably the type of player that is going to keep getting better and better as he progresses. He might still be two or three years away, but last year as a rookie, in Vancouver's run to the Memorial Cup, he was probably their best centerman down the stretch. He was out with mono for a bit this year and his ice time tailed off, but he's one of those players who is underrated. He's a very good positional centerman and he's good on the forecheck - he does a lot of the dirty work. I think the more he plays with better players the better he'll get offensively."
