Scouting Report
Assets: Was one of the best standing in front of the net to tip in point shots. Had underrated playmaking skills. Went to the net with vigor and scored the majority of his goals due to supreme determination. Always led by example.
Flaws: His style of play often led to a lot of injuries. Didn't have enough of a shot to be an elite goal-scoring winger. Wasn't as dangerous later on in his career, mainly because he took so much abuse in front of the net.
Career Potential: Hard-working scoring winger and grinder.
