Scouting Report
Owns a good frame for the NHL game, plus excellent puck-moving ability. Can be an asset on special teams and has excellent passing ability. Produces solid offensive totals and can log huge minutes. Could stand to add more bulk to his 6-2 frame, especially for the rigors of the National Hockey League schedule, in order to maximize output in the NHL.Also, he is not an overly physical defenseman.
Long Range Potential: Quality, all-around defenseman with a little upside.
