Scouting Report
Assets: Had ideal NHL size, and he loved to hit people. Could shut opposing forwards down. Possessed hockey sense and a little offensive ability from the blueline.
Flaws: Lacked the ideal offensive acumen of a natural point-producing defenseman. Also lacked the ability to stay in the lineup, as he was somewhat injury-prone.
Career Potential: Solid shutdown defenseman, when healthy.
