Scouting Report
Displays a sound work ethic that has a tendency to rub off on his teammates. Is a proven point producer at lower levels. Can play the game with physicality. Also owns some two-way ability for the big league. Does not have ideal size (5-11, 185 pounds) for the National Hockey League game, so he must prove capable of playing his meat-and-potatoes style effectively at the highest level. Does not have elite skill.
Long Range Potential: Industrious forward with a little upside.
