Scouting Report
Assets: Has great size and poise with the puck. Moves the disc with aplomb, is very mobile and efficient overall. Also displays flashes of offensive acumen. Is capable of logging huge minutes if required.
Flaws: Doesn't have enough of a mean streak yet to make a physical impact at the highest level. Isn't a natural power-play quarterback, either. Can get into trouble when he doesn't trust his instincts.
Career Potential: All-around defenseman with good upside.
