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.

Newly minted captain of the Sabres in (23/24)
Veteran forward who is on the back nine of his career.
Depth role. Averages 11:39 TOI - 9:59 ES - 1:39 PK - is not being used on the PP
Appears leaner. His fitness is definitely better than the past couple seasons and his skating has benefited. Not a burner, but quicker in small areas than he has been.
Competes. Still enough skill to potentially chip in with offense occasionally.
Role on the PK. Willing to block shots. Pushes back physically when required. A 4F.
