The Rangers 1st pick, 4th overall in the 99' entry draft. Is an offensive machine, with an insatiable appetite for scoring. Is like a shark when an opportunity to make a play arises. Has improved his first couple steps with power skating lessons, which needed improvement for the NHL level. Is a powerful skater with a long stride once in open ice. Has always has good speed once he gets going, and his quicker acceleration should make that seem even faster. Is not shy of the physical play, and is not easily intimidated. Has a laser like wrist shot, a cannon of a slap shot, and is a solid passer. Has improved his defensive game, and his work habits. Should crack the Rangers lineup this year.
