Scouting Report
Assets: Owns a projectable frame (6-1) and plenty of puck-moving ability from the back end. Skates well and can produce solid offensive numbers. Is also a smooth defender.
Flaws: Must add bulk and strength to his fairly big frame so as to maximize output at the National Hockey League level. Also, he could stand to amp up his physicality, too.
Career Potential: Depth defenseman with a little upside.
