My only concern, mostly a hunch, is that he might be prone to injuries because he will get his hands dirty.
I hope not. Even though he's a physical player, he seems to be a smart player. Hopefully he stays healthy. I think Neal is a good comparison as well in terms of skill or goal scoring ability.
