Scouting Report
Is a powerful scorer at lower levels with soft hands and an excellent skating stride. Also boasts very good size and tremendous willingness to play the body (he is a great hitter). Must alleviate his reputation for taking a few shifts off if he is to maximize output at the highest level. So, game-to-game consistency is a big challenge. Must raise his game.
Long Range Potential: Power forward with upside.
