Scouting Report
A late-blooming talent, he had a quick growth spurt and is now a towering figure at 6'4". For that size, he skates exceptionally well (both straight ahead and laterally) and plays a fairly mobile game overall. Moves the puck well and is also a capable defender. Can play a physical brand of hockey and will also produce points (though he is not a natural offensive defenseman). His skating ability allows him to play on either side of the ice, which adds to his overall value. Could stand to add more bulk.
Long Range Potential: Rangy, mobile and versatile defenseman with some upside.
