Scouting Report
Has very good mobility and puck-moving skills (he usually is efficient in getting the puck out of the defensive zone). Owns some offensive ability, as well. Also displays excellent lower-body strength. Could stand to shoot the puck more often so as to generate more scoring chances at the highest level. Does not have ideal height for a National Hockey League defenseman. Needs a bit more polish.
Long Range Potential: Solid puck-moving defenseman with some upside.
