Scouting Report
Assets: Excels in defensive situations. Is a gifted skater and makes solid outlet passes. Has a good shot that can be somewhat effective on the power play, although we hardly see him there nowadays.
Flaws: Is not a natural puck handler, so he's not power-play quarterback material. Doesn't often use his physicality to intimidate opponents, which lessens his ability to dominate smaller forwards. Injuries are an issue.
Career Potential: Solid veteran shutdown defenseman, when healthy.
