Scouting Report
Was a good skater and finisher. Saw the ice well and loved to use his imagination and natural offensive gifts. Excellent on the power play, he also excelled when killing penalties. Had solid instincts and loved to hold onto the puck to create an opening.
Battled several injuries over the course of his career, including concussions, and was somewhat fragile. As a result, he could not be relied upon to be in the lineup every night. Could have used a little more consistent grit to do a better job in the corners.
Career Potential:
Fragile but excellent two-way winger.
