Scouting Report
Has an abundance of checking ability and solid instincts. Reads the play well and is very heady. Kills penalties with aplomb. Can score clutch goals at the highest level, too. Lacks both size and strength, which can occasionally hinder his ability to thrive on the smaller North American ice. Also lacks offensive consistency. Injuries are an issue.
Long Range Potential: Solid checking center, when healthy.
