Scouting Report
Assets: Owns the hands, big-time shot and awareness of a natural goal-scorer. Has great size and reach to fend off blueliners, and enough speed to leave them behind. Can play a complete game when he's on.
Flaws: Is a somewhat streaky point producer and isn't as good at setting up his linemates as he is when finishing plays off himself. Is inconsistent at the face-off dot. Needs to prove he can get back to playing a an elite level.
Career Potential: Excellent, versatile scoring forward and leader.
