Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Thinks like a goal-scorer and is willing to pay the price in front of the net to score goals. Skates well and plays with feistiness. Is capable of lining up on either side of center.

Weaknesses: 

Is only average in the defensive zone. Still drifts too much and needs to focus more on playing 60 minutes every night. Doesn't use his body enough.

Projection: 

Scoring winger on the decline.
