|Owns great size, two-way acumen, leadership qualities and face-off skills. Versatile, he can play both wing and center. Lanky, he has a great reach and works well in the corners. His intensity and game-to-game consistency tend to drift, which is his biggest bugaboo at the National Hockey League level. Does not shoot the puck nearly often enough.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Big, versatile forward.|
