Scouting Report
Assets: A brilliant, explosive skater with multiple gears, he also sports an exceptional goal-scoring touch, soft hands and offensive instincts. Can shoot the puck with aplomb and play either wing. Knows how to put the puck in the net and can excel in short-handed situations.
Flaws: Is somewhat smallish in stature and can play a soft game without the puck on his stick. Is now more committed than he was earlier in his career but must continue to improve his overall game, since he lacks the consistency needed to truly excel in the NHL.
Career Potential: Ultra-fast, yet inconsistent scoring winger.
