Scouting Report
Assets: Is a born leader. Plays with loads of feistiness and energy. Shows excellent quickness and possesses nifty skills and instincts around an opposing net, and will even take a pounding in front of it.
Flaws: Over time he can also wear down with overuse, mainly because of his smallish stature. When he plays too much, he tends to start making mental mistakes. Injuries are increasingly problematic.
Career Potential: Diminutive, savvy veteran winger and leader.
