The offensive side of his game has flourished this year, his speed and skill are elite and obviously he has the ability to contribute offensively. But also, he has continued to build the defensive side of his game in all three zones enabling him to have really improved his all around game. Tanner has been an excellent citizen off the ice volunteering and helping out in the community.
