Scouting Report

Assets:
Boasts the hand/eye coordination, imagination and hockey sense of an offensive stud. Doesn't shy away from heavy traffic areas, and is a constant top-end threat when roaming around an opponent's goal. Is extremely determined to be the best he can be. Scores goals with a great shot and is also a great passer.
Flaws:
Isn't nearly as good in the skating department as many of his peers in the National Hockey League. His top-end speed is below-average. Also, he's only an average defensive player and doesn't have a physical edge to his game. Also, he can be prone to extensive goal-scoring slumps (though he contributes in other ways).
Career Potential:
Elite franchise center.
