Scouting Report
Assets: A 'new-breed' type of undersized defenseman who excels in puck possession and puck movement, he can produce points too. Does not panic with the puck on his stick.
Flaws: Needs to prove he can play at a high level against tougher competition, and he will need to add more bulk in order to accomplish that--especially if he is to be a physical player.
Career Potential: Quality, puck-moving defenseman with upside.
