Scouting Report
Assets:
Skates well and possesses a lot of offensive creativity--likes to control the puck, and keeps his feet moving at all times. Crafty, he works very hard at improving his overall game. Is not scared of going into heavy traffic areas, despite his smallish stature.
Flaws:
Is not big and lacks strength, which causes problems when battling for pucks against bigger NHL opponents. Needs to improve his face-off prowess, as well as continue to work on his play down low in the defensive zone (and without the puck in general).
Career Potential:
Diminutive but creative and productive veteran center.
