Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Has great size and two-way potential. Can play the role of instigator to perfection. Possesses above-average offensive upside.

Weaknesses: 

Needs to shed the 'lazy' tag. Does not have the creativity to rack up big assist totals in the NHL. Must cut down on the number of bad penalties he takes.
