Scouting Report
Assets: Is a silky smooth skater with tremendous lateral movement and acceleration. Can pinch in effectively, or roam around like a fourth forward. Owns a lot of creativity and goal-scorers' hands. Also owns leadership qualities and solid hitting skills.
Flaws: Is a little undersized for the blueline position in the NHL, so he struggles on occasion against bigger forwards in front of his own net. Must limit his mistakes in the defensive zone in order to maximize his vast all-around potential.
Career Potential: Outstanding offensive defenseman.
