Scouting Report
Assets:
Agitates opponents effectively. Skates very well, is versatile enough to line up on either side of center. Has two-way acumen and good size for the NHL game. Is good in front of the net and complements skill very well.
Flaws:
Lacks offensive consistency, which prevents him from putting up top-line forward production at the National Hockey League level (despite playing the role often). Also lacks a little creativity with the puck.
Career Potential:
Versatile, two-way agitating forward.
