2017-18 Season Stats
|Possesses good instincts in all areas of the game, a very big frame and a streaky scoring touch. Knows where to be on the ice. Good in the slot, his soft hands are an advantage in heavy traffic. Unloads an accurate wrister. Is a good penalty killer and can play all three forward positions.|
|It is not his style of play, but he would benefit greatly from utilizing his 6-4, 208-pound frame more to his advantage (but he is simply not very physical). Also, his skating is merely average by NHL standards. Injuries have been a problem throughout his professional career.|
|Versatile veteran forward.|
