Talent Analysis
Plays a simple game. Relies on positional play. Neither overly physical nor overly quick; an improvement in either category improve his chances of advancing beyond the AHL level.  
Future
One of a small number of returning Amerks from last season. He should assume a more prominent role in 2008-09.
