Scouting Report
Is a real natural when quarterbacking the power play, as he is smooth as silk with the puck on his stick. Uses his active stick well when defending his own zone. Is a very cerebral player. Is significantly undersized for the NHL game, so he has a tendency to get knocked off the puck too easily. Must prove capable of being a quality defender against bigger forwards.
Long Range Potential: Diminutive, talented offensive defenseman with good upside.
