Scouting Report
Assets: Has the size NHL scouts look for from the blueline position. Is physical and at his best when he keeps his game simple. Is a willing pugilist who can also deliver bone-jarring hits if he's lucky.
Flaws: His puck skills leave a lot to be desired. Also, he is prone to taking bad penalties. Won't put up a lot of points at the highest level. His skating ability is not great by National Hockey League standards.
Career Potential: Physical depth defenseman.
