Scouting Report
Assets: Has good size and great work ethic. Makes room for himself thanks to his bulk and strength; he's effective along the wall. Is tenacious on the forecheck and an excellent team player. Can score goals in bunches. Is also a sound penalty-killing option.
Flaws: Is a bit too inconsistent in the scoring department and doesn't shoot the puck nearly enough to produce better numbers. Isn't the fastest skater on the ice, though he makes up for it with hockey sense and savvy. Lacks consistency in toughness.
Career Potential: Industrious, versatile veteran winger.
