Scouting Report
Owns a good frame for the NHL game, plus decent puck-moving ability. Can be an asset on special teams and has serviceable passing skills. Can produce solid offensive totals and can log huge minutes at the NHL level. Could stand to add more bulk to his 6'2" frame, especially for the rigors of the National Hockey League schedule. Lacks consistency in all facets of the game. Also, he is not an overly physical defenseman.
Long Range Potential: Solid defenseman.
