Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Has relentless energy on the ice and is one of the most durable forwards in the league. Is smart with the puck and a capable playmaker from the wing.

Weaknesses: 

Age has crept up on him, and his hands have left him. Doesn't appear capable of playing a top-six role any longer, which used to be his calling card.
