Scouting Report
Assets: Boasts good size, solid scoring prowess and a flair for the dramatic in his game. Shoots first, asks questions later. Not shy about venturing into heavy traffic areas, he can play on either side of center. Also has a mean streak.
Flaws: Needs to continue to work on playing a consistent brand of hockey, especially in the offensive zone. Must also prove he can play sans injuries for long stretches, which have been a challenge for him over the years.
Career Potential: Big, inconsistent scoring winger with a little upside.
