Powered By
The Pro Hockey Group
Note: Reports prior to Sept 2023 were originally graded out of ten, and also included additional categories that have been merged into the current categories.
This likely results in the overall ratings prior to 2023 being decreased in comparison to reports since Sept 2023.

For an `Apples to Apples` comparison between players, we recommend only comparing reports before, or after, Sept 2023.
Results will average out accordingly as more data is accumulated.

Report #2

Oct. 11, 2023 (Updated Oct. 12, 2023)
Contract: $39,000,000 over 6 years (Cap hit: $6,500,000)
Position scouted: Right Wing
Age when scouted: 31
Projection: Third Line
Trending: Under NHL Contract
Limited to 37 games in (22/23) due to injury. Averaged 14:16 TOI. Deployed at ES and PP.
Aggressive with the puck on his stick. When he gets a look at the net he has a 'shoot first' approach. Credited with 93 SOG in the 37GP.
Although his minutes are down he still plays a valuable role. A pesky player who isn't shy about hanging around the crease. Gets under the skin of opponents. Tenacious, not overly physical. Only 18 hits and 13 shot blocks.
A lot of miles on his tires but a player the younger prospects can look up to in Montreal. Competes shift in and shift out. Impact is beginning to range.

Heart and soul player who leaves everything on the ice
Competes. Cares. Gives everything he has.
When he isn't producing offense he contributes in other areas with his aggressive style of forechecking and battling in the hard areas.
His production, however, is falling off and his durability will potentially become a concern as he continues into his 30's
Has the pace, skill, and brain to be used in all situations. Leads by example.
