Scouting Report
Is a supreme playmaker with enough quickness and shiftiness to play any role at the highest level. Good on face-offs, he likes to shoot the puck too. Oozes hockey sense, both with and without the puck. Produces in the clutch. Can play any forward position. Can be knocked off the puck due to size constraints and is not much of a physical presence on the ice. Gets to where he needs to be, but is not a great skater by today's National Hockey League standards. Is prone to the occasional scoring slumps.
Long Range Potential: Excellent, versatile veteran scorer.
