Scouting Report
Owns good size for the National Hockey League game, plus a wealth of offensive production at lower levels to fall back on. Can be an asset on the power play due to a great point shot. Still needs to work on his defensive-zone coverage, as well as utilize his big frame more to his advantage, in order to maximize output at the highest level. Must adjust to North America.
Long Range Potential: Big, offensive defenseman with a little upside.
