Scouting Report
Assets: Displays a mature two-way game, but with agitating qualities. Is also a natural leader and has a little offensive upside. Can play either wing position effectively and is also a solid penalty-killer.
Flaws: His physical style can take its toll on his average-sized frame over time, so more strength is required. May be limited to a bottom-six winger role in the NHL, since he lacks offensive consistency.
Career Potential: Solid, versatile winger.
