|Assets:||Has great size and the potential to play a dominating physical game in the corners (as well as in front of the opposing goal). Also has a little offensive upside, and he's not bad defensively either.|
|Flaws:||Needs to use his 6-3, 234-pound frame more to his advantage on a more consistent basis. Doesn't own a high-end skill level and his skating is merely average for the National Hockey League level.|
|Career Potential:||Big, physical complementary winger with some upside.|
