Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Is a natural goal-scorer, and has proven his mettle at lower levels. Can line up on either side of center. Possesses an excellent shot.

Weaknesses: 

Must overcome his defensive shortcomings, which have hurt his chances of landing a top-six forward role in the big league. Lacks size and strength.
