Scouting Report
Assets: Agitates opponents effectively. Is versatile enough to line up on either side of center. Has two-way acumen and good size for the NHL game. Is good in front of the net and complements skilled forwards well.
Flaws: Lacks offensive consistency, which prevents him from putting up top forward production at the National Hockey League level (even if given top minutes up front). Also lacks a little creativity with the puck.
Career Potential: Versatile, veteran two-way winger.
