|Has great size for the center position and plays a top-notch two-way game. Smart, he leads by example. Skates well and is extremely determined. Scores goals in the clutch. His instincts help make players around him better. Can be prone to prolonged scoring slumps. Has been upgrading his level of physical play, since he has the size to do so, but isn't a natural at it. Is not a natural goal-scorer, nor is he an elegant skater at the highest level.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Quality, veteran two-way center.|
