Scouting Report

Can play a sound crash-and-bang game at either wing or center. Provides a lot of energy when in the lineup. Has decent two-way instincts. Works very hard to improve all facets of his game.
At times, he has trouble keeping up with the pace of the NHL. Lacks the offensive ability and overall skills to be more than a role player. Is a limited point producer at the highest level.
Career Potential:
Energy depth forward.
