Scouting Report
Assets:
Usually provides a bundle of energy and never stops skating. Hits and possesses a strong work rate that's highlighted by excellent athleticism. Does his best offensive work in front of the net. Packs a sneaky shot and uses good quickness and positioning in the offensive zone. Can be very effective on both special teams.
Flaws:
Lacks the creativity and touch to create offense for himself and his linemates on a regular basis at the National Hockey League level. Surprisingly strong, he would benefit by continuing to add some more bulk to his 6-2 frame. Lacks some consistency, especially in the offensive zone. Can take bad penalties from time to time.
Career Potential:
Quality, physical two-way winger.
