Scouting Report
Assets: Is one of the best shot-blocking defensemen in NHL history, and thrives in one-on-one battles against top forwards. Plays with tremendous poise. Kills penalties with aplomb and is not shy about hitting the opposition.
Flaws: Won't scare anybody with his offensive ability, since he lacks confidence with the puck. Needs to pick his spots better when lining up opponents. His shot-blocking leads to significant injuries, plus various other aches and pains.
Career Potential: Veteran shutdown defenseman, when healthy.
