Scouting Report
He is well into his 30s, and the signs of aging are apparent. Though he remains an excellent passer with pretty good speed for a big man, his wheels are not quite what they used to be. His defensive work has fallen off and he is no longer the force he used to be on the power play. Still gets to the dangerous scoring areas but does not convert as often as he used to.
Long Range Potential: Talented scoring forward on the back nine of his career.
