He's a middleweight. About the same size as McCarty. But like I said, he's more of an antagonist than anything else and against an inexperienced team in nashville that is very handy.
Average skater, excellent hands, battles in the corners and the front of the net. Has a good wrist shot, good offensive and defensive instincts. Loves to initiate contact and gets under the opponent's skin. Has been a team leader at every level of play. Willing to fight anybody.
May need work on his conditioning at the NHL level and the release on his slapshot isn't that great either. His skating although vastly superior to what it was in his draft year still needs some fine tuning. Needs to cutback on dumb penalties.
Once he fully develops he'll be somewhere inbetween what Maltby and McCarty are. Not a bad combination in a 3rd liner, really.
