Scouting Report
Assets: Is a great forechecker and hitter. Has savvy offensive instincts and overall polish. Is a deft playmaker with a little bit of a mean streak. Skates very well and provides some grit.
Flaws: Lacks high-end goal-scoring acumen, mainly because he passes up way too many shots. Isn't very big by today's NHL standards, so he tends to wear down over time.
Career Potential: Solid complementary winger with physicality.
