Scouting Report
Assets: Can be effective in a shutdown role, due to his mobility and instincts. Has the ability to be an explosive offensive player from the back end as well, and also possesses size and aggressiveness. Shoots the puck very well.
Flaws: While he has the size, strength and aggressive play to be more of a physical presence on the ice, he tends to not go for the big hit most of the time. Therefore, he could stand to keep opposing forwards more honest.
Career Potential: Excellent all-around defenseman.
