Scouting Report

Strengths: 

A player who gives it his all every time he steps onto the ice, he can be used in all game situations at lower levels. Works very hard at improving his overall game.

Weaknesses: 

Lacks ideal size and bulk for the NHL game, and he is somewhat limited in terms of overall talent for the highest level. So, he needs to find his big-league niche.

Projection: 

Hard-working depth forward.
