Scouting Report
Assets: Owns the hands, big-time shot and awareness of a natural goal-scorer. Has great size and reach to fend off blueliners, and decent speed for a big man. Can play a complete game when he's on top of things.
Flaws: Is a streaky point producer and is somewhat inconsistent at the face-off dot. Used to play at an elite level but has been in decline for some time. Is no longer a very good defensive forward. Doesn't always move his feet.
Career Potential: Veteran scoring forward in decline.
