Scouting Report
Assets: Is at his best when used (a lot) in a shutdown role. Has good size, mobility and the ability to limit the damage from the back end. He can log huge minutes with relative ease and is strong with the puck in his own zone.
Flaws: Needs to make better use of his 6-3, 213-pound frame in order to keep elite NHL forwards more honest. Must also continue to work on his shot from the point, as he's a limited offensive player at the highest level.
Career Potential: Big-minute shutdown defenseman.
