Scouting Report
The 2011 Calder Trophy winner continues to search for the form that has produced four seasons of at least 31 goals. Is a terrific shooter from the left wing who knows how to find openings in the defense and get his shot off before goaltenders can get set. Is not a physical player and needs a playmaker on his line to get him the puck. Concussions and injuries have hampered him during his career. His overall skating ability, not just his speed, has always been a major asset.
Long Range Potential: Inconsistent sharpshooting winger.
