Scouting Report
Assets:
Owned an infectious attitude, and he never stopped his motor while on the ice. Played a gung-ho, crash-and-bang game and was a willing combatant. Always thought about his team first. Could initimidate the opposition.
Flaws:
Lacked pure skill and always had to work doubly hard for every point he earned at the NHL level. Was prone to taking bad penalties from time to time, which often came with the territory as a true enforcer in the NHL.
Career Potential:
Heavyweight enforcer, role player and leader.
