Scouting Report
Owned good size, excellent shot-blocking ability and solid defensive awareness. Could log an impressive amount of minutes. A durable defender, he played through injuries regularly. Had great leadership qualities. Lacked consistency on offense and in the hitting department, which prevented him from raising his game to a higher level. His overall puck skills eroded over time.
Long Range Potential: Solid, fearless defenseman and leader.
