Scouting Report
Assets: Has a strong lower body, which enables him to keep possession of the puck in the corners and also dish out plenty of solid hits (especially in open ice). Can score goals in bunches. Is effective when crashing the net.
Flaws: Lacks consistency in a big way. Is somewhat injury-prone, due to his kamikaze style of play. Doesn't skate particularly well and struggles with defensive-zone coverage. Some of his hits are quite questionable.
Career Potential: Physical, streaky winger, when healthy.
