Scouting Report
Has great timing in lining opponents up for huge hits; he is not big, but is tough and can intimidate in open ice. Skates well and is usually in sound defensive position. Has offensive ability, as well. A good puckhandler and passer, he is an asset on the power play. Can struggle when having to deal with big power forwards in front of the net. His lack of size (and big-hitting tendencies) can lead to plenty of injures. Is a bit inconsistent in terms of his offensive production. His overall game is starting to decline, somewhat.
Long Range Potential: Quality, veteran defenseman in decline, when healthy.
