Scouting Report
Assets: Has tremendous size and reach for the wing position, as well as good wheels for a big guy. Controls the puck effectively in the corners and can play on either wing. Possesses a good scoring touch and is at his best when he drives through traffic areas.
Flaws: Still needs a little more work on his defensive-zone coverage, and that's largely because he stops moving his feet at times. Should also use his size more frequently so as to become more intimidating to play against. Goes through important scoring slumps.
Career Potential: Inconsistent, yet big and talented scoring winger.
