|Was extremely shifty and saw the ice well. Possessed tremendous offensive instincts. An excellent playmaker, he found his teammates with precision. Improved his play without the puck over time. Could agitate opponents.|
|Concussion injuries ended his career quite rapidly. At only 5-10, 191 pounds (and although feisty), he could get outmuscled. Wasn't the fastest skater and could get under his coach's skin because of a lack of discipline.|
