He had a chance to skate with Eric Staal last season and made the most of it. Showed flashes of legit skill. He's nobody's idea of a superstar, but he looks like he may carve a niche as a lower end top-6 winger. A nice quiet success story.

Strengths
- Shifty moves in traffic
- Decent enough speed to generate chances
- Seems to work well with higher-end talent

Weaknesses
- Not much of a defensive player to speak of
- Didn't show much offensive ability when paired with more defensive-minded players. Basically, he's not going to create offense all by himself.
