Scouting Report
Is an excellent and dynamic defenseman, complete with a heavy point shot and the ability to quarterback the power play. Moves the puck well and is a very good skater for the NHL. Needs to learn the intricacies of the blueline position, since his defensive awareness can leave him at times. Must also prove he can produce consistent offense with his lack of size.
Long Range Potential: Talented offensive defenseman with upside, when healthy.
