Scouting Report
Assets: Has incredible imagination with the puck and excellent playmaking ability. Has good anticipation and functions expertly during pressure situations. Likes to shoot the puck often when playing the point on the power play. Is a leader by example.
Flaws: Isn't big or physical, so he can wear down against bigger opponents. Also, he can be a bit too soft at times. His defensive game has regressed a little bit over time. Has never been a particularly swift skater or very vocal leader. Is now in decline.
Career Potential: Savvy, versatile veteran scoring forward in decline.
