Scouting Report
Assets: Keeps the game simple and limits his mistakes in the defensive zone. Is quite reliable. Can play a shutdown role, if need be. Is an asset on the penalty kill because he is a quality shot-blocker.
Flaws: His steady, defensive work lacks consistency, and there isn't anything in his game that stands out enough to make up for it. Lacks offensive flair and doesn't produce a lot of points in the NHL.
Career Potential: Depth defenseman.
