Scouting Report
Could play a sound crash-and-bang game at either wing or center. Provided a lot of energy when in the lineup. Had decent two-way instincts. Worked very hard to improve all facets of his game.
At times, he had trouble keeping up with the pace of the NHL. Lacked the offensive ability and overall skills to be more than a role player. Was a limited point producer at the highest level.
Career Potential:
Energy depth forward.
