ASSETS: Has tremendous size and strength, as well as the ability to dominate in the corners. Is aggressive, can fight and boasts a lot of scoring upside.
FLAWS: Is a questionable skater, which could hinder his ability to put up points at the highest level. Takes bad penalties on occasion.
CAREER POTENTIAL: Power forward with upside.
I wouldn't have done this deal if this is all there is to it. AV simply was not playing Hodgson to his capabilities and that I guess is why he is gone. Too bad because this kid will be a star for years to come.
