Scouting Report
Assets: Is a good skater and finisher. Sees the ice well and loves to use his imagination and natural offensive gifts. Excellent on the power play, he also excels when killing penalties. Has solid instincts and loves to hold onto the puck to create an opening.
Flaws: Has battled several injuries over the course of his career, including concussions, and is somewhat fragile. As a result, he can't be relied upon to be in the lineup every night. Could use a little more consistent grit in order to do a better job in the corners.
Career Potential: Excellent, yet fragile scoring winger.
