Scouting Report
A scoring machine from the back end, he is both incredibly mobile and athletic in general. Also boasts tremendous size, to go with his great skating ability. Was able to handle converting from wing to defense flawlessly. Can make a few too many mistakes with the puck from the blueline position, though he recovers very well. Could stand to use his physical gifts a little more to his advantage, especially adding more toughness to his game.
Long Range Potential: Outstanding, athletic offensive defenseman.
