Scouting Report
Assets: Kills penalties and checks opponents with aplomb. Works hard in all three zones and at improving his overall game. Has a projectable frame, two-way instincts and scoring upside. Can play both center and wing.
Flaws: Lacks game-to-game consistency, especially on the offensive side of the ice. Needs to fill out and start using his 6-1 frame with greater frequency so as to maximize his NHL potential as a defensive stalwart.
Career Potential: Versatile two-way forward with a little upside.
