Scouting Report
Assets: Has a motor that doesn't quit, defensive acumen, face-off skills and plenty of agitating qualities. Produces good numbers at lower levels. Is a true pest to play against. Hits anything that moves.
Flaws: Doesn't own a lot of natural goal-scoring ability, and is also somewhat undersized for his rough-and-tumble style. Also, he will take a bad penalty from time to time--mostly due to excessive exuberance.
Career Potential: Agitating, defensive energy forward.
