Scouting Report
Assets: Plays with a lot of confidence with the puck. Quite gritty for a player his size, he owns plenty of offensive acumen and moves the puck up ice with aplomb. Has great wheels.
Flaws: A lack of size and strength hinders his ability to defend bigger forwards at the NHL level. Is also prone to mental lapses. He lacks consistency in the offensive zone.
Career Potential: Mobile, yet undersized puck-moving defenseman.
