Scouting Report
Assets: Has excellent offensive capability and all-round acumen. Good in transition, his quickness, talent and poise with the puck are assets. Can make an impact on the power play. Not big, he is stronger than he looks and will use the body effectively in the NHL.
Flaws: Can struggle against bigger forwards in front of his own net, as he isn't the biggest or strongest defenseman in the league. When he is not on top of his overall game, he goes into defensive slumps and can be somewhat of a liability in his own zone.
Career Potential: Quality, veteran offensive defenseman.
