Scouting Report
Assets: Can log huge minutes and is very durable for his limited size. He competes, is extremely mobile and can rush with the puck or pinch in from the point. Reads the play well, and shoots the puck with accuracy. Will block shots.
Flaws: Does have difficulty at times when opposed to big NHL forwards and is not generally regarded as a physical defender by any stretch of the imagination. Is starting to slow down with overuse over the years.
Career Potential: Savvy veteran big-minute defenseman, if healthy.
