Scouting Report
Has very good skating speed, 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. Could stand to be a little stronger, as he lacks an ideal (6-0) frame for the National Hockey League. Was somewhat injury-prone earlier in his career but has rebounded nicely over time.
Long Range Potential: Quality, veteran two-way center.
