Scouting Report
Is an industrious forward who can score goals at lower levels (and also play sound, two-way hockey). Can shoot the puck well, too. Always gives an honest effort when on the ice. Lacks optimum size (6-0, 194 pounds) for the National Hockey League. Also, he lacks the high-end talent that is usually associated with top-six forwards at the highest level.
Long Range Potential: Solid, hard-working winger with a little upside.
