Scouting Report
Owns the size scouts love from the blueline position at the National Hockey League level, plus excellent offensive acumen. Is a natural with the puck on his blade. Can be a factor on the power play, as well. Could stand to be more aggressive to fully take advantage of his imposing size, but he must also continue to improve his play when he does not have the puck to maximize his vast NHL potential.
Long Range Potential: Talented, mobile offensive defenseman with upside.
