Scouting Report
Skates well and offers plenty of energy, though his offensive skills are limited. Uses his speed effectively on the forecheck to make life miserable for opposing defensemen. Can pick up his teammates' pace with his energy. Is also becoming a useful penalty killer. The fact he can play any forward position adds to his overall value.
Long Range Potential: Pesky depth forward.
