Scouting Report
Assets: Makes the most of his ability and usually limits the mistakes in the defensive zone. Is a quality teammate with sound work ethic. Can line up on either side of the ice. Leads by example. Blocks shots with aplomb in the NHL.
Flaws: Is extremely limited in the offensive zone--defense is the name of his game. Lacks a strong point shot, so he's not much of point producer at the National Hockey League level. Is only average in terms of size. Is in decline.
Career Potential: Veteran defenseman and quality leader.
