Scouting Report
Assets:
Has good size, which he likes to utilize early and often throughout a game. Plays an agitating, in-your-face game. Can play either wing position and scores in streaks. Can be an asset from in close (even on the power play).
Flaws:
Has had trouble meeting expectations. Is not a natural offensive winger and does not own enough high-end skills to become an impact scorer. Needs to stay away from taking bad penalties when riling up opponents.
Career Potential:
Veteran agitating winger in decline.
