Scouting Report
A 'new-breed' type of undersized defenseman who excels in puck possession and puck movement, he can produce points too. Does not panic with the puck on his stick. Needs to prove he can play at a high level against tougher competition, and he will need to add more bulk in order to accomplish that--especially if he is to be a physical player.
Long Range Potential: Quality, puck-moving defenseman with upside.
