Scouting Report
Has plenty of puck-moving ability. Also boasts a very big frame and some physicality. Has shutdown ability, as well. Can play on either side, which adds value. Lacks discipline. Needs to become a far more consistent defenseman (in all facets of the game) in order to garner more minutes at the big-league level.
Long Range Potential: Inconsistent defenseman.
