Scouting Report
Assets: Is skilled and polished. Rarely makes mistakes with the puck and is also a sound positional forward. Excels in shootouts and can line up on either side of center (and he even takes face-offs).
Flaws: Is not very big or strong, and can be intimidated by bigger defensemen. Is considered a bit 'soft' by NHL standards. Lacks consistency in the offensive zone. Is now a declining performer.
Career Potential: Versatile, skilled veteran forward in decline.
