Scouting Report
Assets: Owned good hands and the ability to produce offense at lower levels. Had a nose for the net and was aggressive on the forecheck. Liked to play the body and was capable of laying players out in open ice. Could play wing or center.
Flaws: Played a style that led to injuries, especially for someone of his stature (5-11, 187 pounds). Lacked consistency and was never able to live up to advanced billing as a potential franchise player. His work ethic was also suspect.
Career Potential: Talented, gritty but inconsistent forward.
