Scouting Report
Assets:
Has speed, which he uses effectively when up against rival NHL pivots. Works hard in all three zones and is still a highly dependable player (especially in the defensive zone) thanks to great commitment. Can win important face-offs. Can also play wing.
Flaws:
Has a tendency to get hurt a lot, which limits his value to his team. Doesn't use his 6-2, 207-pound frame enough to his advantage. Was once more of a streaky point producer but is now much more of a role player (he is in steep decline on offense).
Career Potential:
Savvy veteran role player in decline.
