Scouting Report
Assets:
Had a strong lower body, which enabled him to keep possession of the puck in the corners and also dish out plenty of solid hits (especially in open ice). Could score goals in bunches. Was effective when crashing the net.
Flaws:
Injuries ravaged his career, especially later on, and he was not able to bounce back. Lacked consistency. Did not skate particularly well and struggled with defensive-zone coverage. Some of his hits were questionable.
Career Potential:
Impactful physical winger, when healthy.
