Scouting Report
Assets: Has a great shot from the point. Skates extremely well for a big man and even displays a mean streak on the ice from time to time. Owns all-around acumen and can log huge minutes in a shutdown role.
Flaws: Sometimes, his positioning isn't great and he tends to leave the defensive zone too early. Must be a more consistent presence all over the ice to maximize output in the National Hockey League.
Career Potential: Quality, inconsistent big-minute defenseman.
