Scouting Report
Assets:
Skates very well for a big forward and always drives the net with authority. Is versatile, solid at both ends of the ice and great along the boards. Has great hands and a sneaky hard shot. Creates space for his linemates thanks to his strength and puckhandling skills.
Flaws:
Takes so much punishment in front of the opposing goal that he is prone to injuries, and he tends to wear down over the course of the long season. His passing ability is only average, at best. Concussion problems may lead to the end of his solid NHL career.
Career Potential:
Veteran scoring winger in decline, if healthy.
