Scouting Report
Could be considered a prototype for what National Hockey League teams look for in a defenseman in the modern era: an imposing, projectable frame, outstanding skating skills (especially for his frame), the ability to make a strong first pass out of the defensive zone and two-way acumen. It also helps to be a right-shooting defender, which adds to his overall value. Plays the game smoothly and does not force too many things on offense, which also somewhat limits his overall scoring potential. Is fairly safe and reliable. During his junior career, he suffered a blood clot that stalled his development a little, so he needs to overcome that setback in order to maximize output in the NHL in the long run.
Long Range Potential: Big, mobile two-way defenseman with upside.
