Scouting Report
Assets: Owns very good playmaking skills and mobility. Is creative, plays a mature game and possesses two-way acumen. Always works hard, is very dedicated and responsible in his own end. Can play all three forward positions.
Flaws: At times, physical opponents will get the best of him (especially in the corners). Is only average in the goal-scoring department; it wouldn't hurt if he started shooting the puck more often. Lacks offensive consistency.
Career Potential: Quality, versatile two-way forward.
