Scouting Report
Has great hockey sense, plus the mobility to play big minutes for his team (in all game situations). Can be a factor as a power-play quarterback, but is also relied upon as a shutdown defender. Can be physical. Does not always dominate as he should when he is on the ice, so he must work on his game-to-game consistency in order to maximize his two-way upside in the NHL. Also needs to fill out his big frame.
Long Range Potential: Big, all-around defenseman with some upside.
