Scouting Report
Assets:
Has good size and strength. Can play the crash-and-bang game with aplomb. Will drop the mitts and can also play all three forward positions. Is a sound penalty-killer. Skates well.
Flaws:
His lack of soft hands limits his ice time at the National Hockey League level. Is not a heavyweight, so his ability to enforce leaves a little to be desired (he loses a lot of fights).
Career Potential:
Physical, versatile depth forward.
