Scouting Report
Assets: Owns obvious leadership traits, and the reliability and presence of a veteran player. Puts up points at lower levels largely based on sheer determination and hard work. Adds plenty of grit to a hockey lineup. Owns great intangibles.
Flaws: Gets into trouble when he tries to play too much of a skill game, as he is a meat-and-potatoes type through and through. Could be limited to third-line duty at the highest level. Must become stronger in order to maximize NHL output.
Career Potential: Gritty, hard-nosed role player and leader with some upside.
