Scouting Report
Assets: Was excellent at picking up the garbage, usually paying a steep physical price in front of the net. Wasn't shy about hitting opponents back and worked very hard. Could play on either wing. He was a warrior.
Flaws: His body eventually broke down due to all the abuse in front of the net. Was only an average performer in five-on-five situations. Lacked consistency and had a tendency to take bad penalties in the offensive zone.
Career Potential: Complementary winger and front-of-the-net power-play specialist.
