    Scouting Report

    Strengths: 

    Is one of hockey's most dedicated players. Loves to battle for loose pucks and crash the net with authority. Has soft hands and is still a tough customer.

    Weaknesses: 

    Injuries are always a concern with him, especially now that he's over 40. Has skating limitations. Is he still motivated to be the best he can be?
