Scouting Report
Assets: Has plenty of offensive capability, including the skills to play the point on the power play, as well as a howitzer of a shot. Is aggressive by nature; he'll drop the mitts and defend his mates. Skates very well and is at his best in an up-tempo system.
Flaws: Lacks discipline as a defender, including his positioning, decision-making and over-aggressiveness at times. Is physically strong, but lacks ideal size and reach. Would be a more valuable defenseman if he played a more controlled game.
Career Potential: Quality offensive, yet undisciplined veteran defenseman.
