Scouting Report
The late-blooming forward did not make it to the NHL until he was almost 30, but he continues to carve out a role as a defense-first forward despite his lack of size. That is largely because he skates well even as he heads into his late 30s. He also has the kind of hockey smarts that make him an excellent depth option, and he is a reliable presence in the face-off circle.
Long Range Potential: Versatile depth forward.
