Scouting Report
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. 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.
Long Range Potential: Quality, diminutive but savvy winger and leader.
