Scouting Report
His skating sets him apart from the pack, thanks to great lower-body strength, quickness and balance. Is also a natural scorer who has the shot, smarts, focus and instincts to produce quality numbers. Concussions have been an issue for him during his NHL career, and he generally lacks upper body strength. As a result, he is not always willing (or able) to win puck battles in the trenches regularly.
Long Range Potential: Speedy, talented scoring winger.
