Scouting Report
Assets: Has good speed, which he uses effectively when up against rival NHL pivots. Works hard in all three zones and has become a highly dependable player especially in the defensive zone thanks to great commitment. Can win important face-offs.
Flaws: Has a tendency to get hurt a lot, which limits his value to his team. Doesn't use his 6-2, 204-pound frame enough to his advantage. On talent, he should produce more points but lacks consistency in that department (especially over time).
Career Potential: Savvy veteran two-way center.
