Scouting Report
Assets: Knows where to go to score goals. Has a very good shot, and he loves to use it. Also boasts very good size, which he uses effectively in the corners and in front of the net. Scores goals often because of a quick trigger.
Flaws: His physical game can at times go overboard, as he sometimes plays over the edge. In general, he takes too many bad penalties. His skating is only average and his defensive game below current NHL standards.
Career Potential: Big, quality sniper.
