Scouting Report
Agitates opponents effectively. Is versatile enough to line up on either side of center. Has two-way acumen and good size for the NHL game. Is good in front of the net and complements skilled forwards well. Lacks offensive consistency, which prevents him from putting up top forward production at the National Hockey League level (even if given top minutes up front). Also lacks a little creativity with the puck.
Long Range Potential: Versatile, veteran two-way winger.
