It's been a struggle this season
The entire team around him has had a tough year
This player is much better than his stats reflect
Easily identified. He's a shooter. Elite hands in tight space. Quick release. A threat on the PP.
At even strength he has struggled to be involved enough offensively. Not enough touches. Not enough results for a player with his offensive element.
He will always lean offense and have some holes in his game defensively.
When he's not scoring, or at the very least a threat to score, he blends into the game
Has time on his side to improve his overall detail
