Scouting Report

Strengths: 

A good overall package featuring size, dedication and grit, he is a versatile team player. Can play both wing and center. Is at his best when working the corners. Can also instigate and drop the gloves.

Weaknesses: 

Doesn't skate well enough to be used as a top-six forward at the highest level. Needs more work without the puck and when in the defensive zone. Hasn't developed his scoring output, as expected.

Projection: 

Physical gritty depth forward
