Scouting Report
Assets: Can put up points in a scoring role, but also displays a keen ability to play well defensively. Is plenty versatile, heady and a solid, dependable teammate. Is effective in front of the net, where he uses his good size. Will always display sound leadership qualities and play through pain.
Flaws: Doesn't have high-end scoring prowess at the highest level, so he tends to run a little hot and cold in terms of offensive production. Is continously improving his overall quickness, but he doesn't own game-breaking speed.
Career Potential: Versatile, quality complementary forward with leadership qualities.
