Scouting Report
Has excellent size (6-4, 215 pounds), a big shot, shutdown ability and some physicality to his game, so he can be an all-around defender. Skates very well, produces good offensive numbers and can log big minutes. Needs to improve his overall play without the puck and defensive-zone coverage in order to become an all-round defender at the NHL level. Must also keep things simpler, since he can overplay the puck.
Long Range Potential: Big, all-around defenseman with upside.
