Scouting Report

Assets:
Could easily get opponents off their game. Was a good open-ice hitter. A fairly quick skater, he defended his own end effectively and was an excellent penalty killer. Was versatile enough to play on either side of center.
Flaws:
Despite his hard work, he did not have the size or skill to be a major scorer. Was somewhat prone to taking bad penalties and did not always time his big hits correctly. Lacked discipline in a major way.
Career Potential:
Effective, versatile agitating winger.
