Scouting Report
Defends very well, thanks to an active stick, sound positioning and the ability to deliver big hits. Also moves the puck efficiently, is mobile and can even join the rush. Is not a natural offensive defenseman, so he is not the best option to quarterback a power play (at any level). Must add more bulk and strength to maximize output.
Long Range Potential: Solid defenseman with some upside.
