Talent Analysis
As a player, he stands out with his physical and aggressive play. He has good timing in his hits and loves to deliver a good check when given the opportunity. He plays somewhat dirty at times and agitates the opposing players frequently. His mobility is decent, but hockey sense and offensive awareness average. He has a pretty powerful slap shot and is a good leader.
