Scouting Report
Has very good skating ability, two-way ability and the playmaking skills needed to put up points. A determined player, he can be an asset on special teams in the NHL. Needs to continue adding strength to his 6-1 frame in order to better fend off the injury bug. Must also improve his offensive consistency at the highest level.
Long Range Potential: Solid two-way center, when healthy.
