Scouting Report
Assets: Is an awesome one-on-one defender, has a great reach and can dish out punishing body checks. He's also an excellent power-play point man, due to a big shot and great hockey sense. Was born to lead. Can log huge amounts of ice time when healthy.
Flaws: A serious concussion has placed his career somewhat in doubt, and he has become injury-prone and aged over time. Has a tendency to take bad penalties and make questionable hits from time to time. Isn't a natural when rushing up the ice with the puck.
Career Potential: All-time great defenseman with injury issues.
