Scouting Report
Assets:
Is fast and tenacious on the forecheck. Displays a little scoring ability in the NHL (and a LOT at lower levels). Can line up on either side of center and is also decent defensively.
Flaws:
People have always questioned his size (5-8, 174 pounds), which prevented him from taking the final step and becoming an NHL regular. Lacks high-end offensive instincts.
Career Potential:
Diminutive, depth energy winger.
