Scouting Report
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.
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.
