Scouting Report
Assets: Has good size and reach. Can line up either at center or wing. Displays the ability to excel in all three zones and provide leadership at lower levels.
Flaws: Injuries have stunted his NHL development. Is woefully inconsistent in the offensive zone and can take shifts off. Doesn't use his 6-1 frame enough.
Career Potential: Versatile forward with a little upside, when healthy.
