Scouting Report
Has great hockey instincts, plays a smart two-way game and possesses outstanding leadership qualities. Can kill penalties exceptionally well. A true competitor, he is not very big but can play a strong physical game.
His fiery, abrasive demeanor can wear him down over the course of the lengthy season. Will occasionally cross the line, on and off the ice, and has had off-ice issues to deal with. His offensive game is in steep decline.
Career Potential:
Veteran two-way center and leader in decline.
