Scouting Report
Had good size and strength. Played the crash-and-bang game with aplomb. Was able to drop the mitts and could also play all three forward positions at the National Hockey League level. Was a sound penalty killer. Skated well. His lack of soft hands limited his ice time in the NHL. Was not a heavyweight, so his ability to enforce left a little to be desired (he lost a lot of fights).
Long Range Potential: Physical, versatile depth forward.
