Scouting Report
Assets: Owns good breakaway speed, a pretty hard shot and legit offensive instincts. Has size for the wing position and is a strong two-way player when he puts his mind to it. Scores goals in bunches.
Flaws: Lacks the game-in and game-out presence of a star scoring winger. Plays better with an edge, but that aspect of his game also lacks consistency. Can run into nagging injuries. Takes games off.
Career Potential: Inconsistent, versatile veteran winger.
