Tons of heart, never takes a shift off, and can play on any line (he spent time on our 1st line when we had injuries).

His max potential is probably 10 goals and 20-25 points a season. He's also got a fantastic attitude, and he looks like jesus when he grows his beard in...



Can't find a great picture of it, it gets even better when its longer.

The only issue is, over the long haul he hasn't been able to sustain it. Usually his best games come first though, so, a perfect call-up.

As stated, he's clutch as ****, and even more fun is the fact that he falls down during/after 99% of all goals he scores.
Thanks guys. Sounds like a bit of a Kennedy/Talbot hybrid.
