Scouting Report
Assets: Excels in one-on-one battles. Has a very active stick and long reach, which make him very effective in the shutdown role. Skates well and is extremely cerebral. Can produce offensively.
Flaws: Could stand to utilize his 6-4, 208-pound frame more often so as to keep opposing forwards more honest. Isn't a natural power-play point man. Concussions are a bit of a concern.
Career Potential: Excellent shutdown defenseman with some upside.
