|Had impressive size and strength, which he used effectively in front of the net and along the wall. Was accomplished in the defensive zone, killed penalties and provided plenty of leadership. Could also play any forward position.|
|Over time, injuries started to pile up. Therefore, he was not the point producer he was earlier in his career. Also, he ran hot and cold in the scoring department. Off-ice issues, specifically substance abuse, put a late damper on his career.|
|Versatile, big forward with a defensive conscience.|
