He never was much of a goal scorer except in his younger days in the 80's and early 90's during the BHL era when the goalies were shocking. He has often been accused of "chiselling" i.e. telling the ref he got an assist on the goal but he has always denied this. I don't think it is true, I'm a linesman in the EPIHL and I don't recall ever seeing him chisel from the referee, all his assists were legit.

I've only seen him once so far this season and he looked only a tiny fraction of his former self, he missed a lot of passes which went for icing and they weren't much better in the offensive zone either. So it's pretty scary that he's still putting up those numbers.
