Scouting Report
Has very good skating ability and is able to log huge minutes at the National Hockey League level. Can play a shutdown role because he blocks shots. Can struggle when he is forechecked heavily. Is not a natural NHL point producer, despite the mobility to do so. Injuries and a lack of size are also concerns.
Long Range Potential: Veteran, mobile defenseman.
