Scouting Report
Provides a lot of energy, can kill penalties and is not afraid to rumble. Can line up both at center or wing and provides plenty of versatility to a lineup. Works hard and has sound fundamentals. Is pretty good on face-offs. Is a limited offensive forward in the NHL and somewhat undersized (6-0) for the physical role he plays. Will occasionally take bad penalties that hurt his team. Struggles when given too much ice time. Injuries are a factor.
Long Range Potential: Physical, versatile defensive forward, when healthy.
