Scouting Report
Assets: A smooth operater, he's extremely heady and a good playmaker. Makes his linemates better in the offensive zone. Has a wealth of two-way ability and setup skills. Is a big asset on both special teams.
Flaws: Is a bit thin for the National Hockey League, so injuries can be an issue for him. Doesn't always shoot the puck enough, so he can afford to be more selfish so as to keep defenses honest.
Career Potential: Skilled, veteran two-way center.
