Scouting Report
His skating skills have not eroded even as he has moved into his mid-30s. He works hard every shift, kills penalties well and is a threat to score when his team is down a man. Is not a big point producer but is the type of player a coach can put on the ice to protect a late-game lead. Injuries have always been an issue for him.
Long Range Potential: Speedy veteran checker (when healthy).
