Scouting Report
Plays with plenty of energy every shift. Owns some offensive acumen and a lot of passion, but gritty defense is the name of his game in the National Hockey League. Is quite versatile, which adds to his value. Is a bit undersized for the NHL, so he must continue to prove he can withstand the physical punishment (and avoid serious injury) while initiating contact and playing his rambunctious game over the long haul.
Long Range Potential: Versatile energy forward.
