Scouting Report
Assets: A born leader, he played with loads of feistiness and energy. Showed excellent quickness and possessed nifty skills (and instincts) around the opposing net, and could even take a physical pounding in front of it.
Flaws: Over time, he wore down with overuse in the National Hockey League (mainly because of his smallish stature). When he played too much, he had a tendency to make mental mistakes. Injuries were always a concern.
Career Potential: Quality, diminutive but savvy winger and leader.
