Scouting Report
Assets: Knows where to go to score goals. Has a very good shot, and he loves to use it. Also boasts very good size, which he uses effectively in the corners and in front of the net. Scores goals often because of a quick trigger.
Flaws: His physical game lacks consistency, which could be all that is preventing him from becoming an elite NHLer. Won't do all the things usually associated with a power forward. Can at times take bad penalties, though.
Career Potential: Big scoring winger with a great release.
