Scouting Report
Played his best hockey in big moments. Was extremely creative and capable of seeing the play develop in slow motion. Made excellent decisions when passing and shooting. Excelled on power plays (and behind the opposing net). Had outstanding hands.
Could get pushed off the puck at times, and lacked strength when in front of the opposing net against bigger defenders. Was known to go into scoring slumps from time to time. Was never a great defender (that was not really his game at all).
Career Potential:
Diminutive but excellent scorer with clutch ability.
