Scouting Report
The No. 19 pick in the 2010 draft (and nephew of former NHL forward Scott Bjugstad) has seen his offense almost disappear as his career has progressed--in large part because of injuries. As a 6'6" forward, he has the size to dominate when he is on the ice, though he almost never does. He combines skill and size with goal-scoring instincts, but lacks consistency.
Long Range Potential: Big, skilled depth forward (when healthy).
