Scouting Report
Assets: Was one of the toughest warriors to ever play in the NHL. A hard-working energy forward, he earned a lot of respect in standing up for his teammates. Had strong forechecking and penalty-killing skills. Could rattle his opponents with hits and an in-your-face attitude. Was great at blocking shots.
Flaws: Got hurt a lot because he was always putting his body on the line. In fact, his career ended on a blocked shot to the face! Was somewhat limited in terms of natural scoring ability. Some of his agitating qualities that riled up the opposition had repercussions.
Career Potential: Energy forward, warrior and leader with defensive ability.
