Scouting Report
Has a mammoth frame (6-6) for the center position, plus he can also play right wing. Displays good goal-scoring instincts and a quick trigger. Knows where to position himself to score goals in the NHL. Needs to improve his all-around consistency, since he has a tendency to disappear for lengthy stretches. Could stand to improve his passing ability for the highest level. Staying healthy has been difficult for him.
Long Range Potential: Big, talented but inconsistent scoring forward.
