Being painfully honest - He really adds nothing but being decent on the draw. There were times when he would play on the PK this year, and unless he won the FO and got off; teams were in for a easy cycle. His foot speed is quite bad....But the low risk isn't much to worry about and generally with these trades players seem to step up.
Not ripping into him, he is a decent 4th liner if you are looking for just that. He tries hard and can be affective on the dump and chase, but overall if a coach keeps him off the ice and restricts him to FOs only...he will do his job.
