Scouting Report

Owns an infectious attitude and never stops his motor while on the ice. Plays a gung-ho, crash-and-bang game and is a willing combatant. Always thinks team-first. Can initimidate the opposition in many ways.
Lacks pure skill and must work doubly hard for every point he earns at the NHL level. Is prone to taking bad penalties from time to time, which often comes with the territory of being a true enforcer.
Career Potential:
Veteran enforcer, role player and leader.
