Scouting Report
Assets: Is a sound offensive player with excellent size and strength. Complements star forwards well. A good skater, he has a good wrister and is also capable of playing all three forward positions. He's an asset on special teams.
Flaws: Isn't physical enough for his size. Still needs some more work in the defensive zone and doesn't play enough of a consistent brand of hockey. Stops moving his feet at times, which hurts his game considerably.
Career Potential: Versatile complementary forward.
