Scouting Report
Assets: Can log big minutes and is adept at shutting opponents down. Has a very solid frame, grit and plenty of puck-moving ability. Gives his all every time he hits the ice.
Flaws: Doesn't own high-end offensive acumen, or the ability to quarterback a power play, so that limits his overall value to his team. Also, he isn't much of an intimidator.
Career Potential: Solid big-minute defenseman.
