Scouting Report
Assets: Skates very well and is usually in sound position on the ice. Makes a very good first pass out of his own end. Has solid offensive instincts. Can jump up into the play well. Can log a ton of minutes.
Flaws: Isn't as effective in physical contests as he is when the game is more passive. Can occasionally make a critical blunder in the defensive zone when pressured with the puck. Lacks a bit of consistency.
Career Potential: Mobile veteran defenseman.
