Scouting Report
Assets: Has outstanding goal-scoring instincts and a huge frame, which he uses to keep puck control. Also skates amazingly well for his size. Can dominate a game with his athletic ability. Can also play either wing position.
Flaws: Can go into scoring droughts, quite often when he tries to do too much on his own--instead of trusting his teammates. Is still a little lacking in his play without the puck and he isn't a natural playmaker.
Career Potential: Elite scoring winger.
