Scouting Report
Assets: Usually provides a bundle of energy and never stops skating. Hits and possesses a strong work rate that's highlighted by excellent athleticism. Has defensive savvy and some scoring acumen. Packs a sneaky swift shot and uses good quickness and positioning in the offensive zone. Sticks his nose in everybody's business.
Flaws: Lacks the creativity and touch required to play a prominent scoring role at the National Hockey League level. Surprisingly strong, he would benefit by continuing to add some more bulk to his 6-2 frame. Lacks some consistency, especially in the offensive zone. Can take bad penalties from time to time.
Career Potential: Solid, physical complementary winger.
