He's from Arizona.
His debut was pretty fantastic. You can tell this guy has skill right from the get go. Very hard to move him off the puck. He reminds me of a young Joe Thornton. But higher ceiling. His shot is awesome too. Best comparison I can make is a hybrid Thornton and Crosby. He's not as good as McDavid in my opinion. McDavid moves more fluidly and can handle the puck better at top speed. Both are phenoms. Generational type players. He's not better than Crosby now but has potential to reach and exceed.
