Scouting Report
A late-blooming talent, he showed slow, steady progress through two seasons in the United States Hockey League, followed by two seasons at the University of Vermont (Hockey East) before turning pro. Capped his NHL rookie season by scoring the Stanley Cup-winning goal and continues to carve out a place for himself as a reliable depth forward. Is not likely to become an offensive force, but knows where the net is and will go to the dirty areas despite a lack of optimum size. Needs to shoot the puck a little more.
Long Range Potential: Versatile depth forward with a little upside.
