Scouting Report
Assets: Is a great forechecker and hitter. When on top of his game, he complements skilled forwards very well. Provides some grit and can be a factor on special teams. Is a streaky scorer.
Flaws: Can go into prolonged scoring slumps, and his streakiness is getting worse as he ages. Passes up too many shots. Is not very big by today's NHL standards, so he tends to wear down.
Career Potential: Veteran complementary winger in decline.
