Scouting Report
Has a projectable frame and solid puck-moving ability. Will make the safe play most of the time and he generally keeps things simple. Can use his size effectively at times but he lacks consistency in that department. To that end, he could stand to add more bulk to his frame to help him become even more reliable in his own end. He will never put up a lot of points in the NHL, since he does not have a history of point production at any level.
Long Range Potential: Solid puck-moving defenseman with a little upside.
