|Was a sound positional player and worked very hard at all aspects of his game. Had good puck-handling skills. Skated well and was an excellent face-off man. Always led by example. Was also plenty versatile.|
|Did not cash in on enough of his many scoring chances, nor did he use his size enough to his advantage. Was a bit disappointing on offense and his production declined fairly rapidly after leaving Edmonton.|
|Industrious, versatile forward and leader.|
