Scouting Report
Can log big minutes and is adept at shutting opponents down. Has a very solid frame, grit and plenty of puck-moving ability. Gives his all every time he hits the ice. Blocks shots with aplomb. Does not own high-end offensive acumen, or the ability to quarterback a power play, so that limits his overall production in the NHL. Also, he lacks consistency in the physicality department.
Long Range Potential: Excellent shutdown defenseman.
