Scouting Report
Assets:
Can line up anywhere up front, and can play a solid checking role. Works very hard every time he steps onto the ice. Does not shy away from physical contact. Is sound at both ends of the ice.
Flaws:
A solid citizen, he does not have enough high-end skill to play a top-six forward role at the NHL level. Can go into prolonged scoring droughts in the big league. Injuries are a big issue here.
Career Potential:
Veteran checking forward, when healthy.
