Scouting Report
Owns excellent wheels and plenty of all-around mobility from the back end. Moves the puck well and is a very good passer. Is also a smooth defender who keeps things simple. Has some leadership qualities, too. Does not have ideal size (5-11, 173 pounds) for the blueline position at the National Hockey League level, so he must add bulk and get physically stronger. Also needs to work on his lack of power with his point shot.
Long Range Potential: Quality, mobile two-way defenseman with upside.
