Scouting Report
Assets: Confidently moves the puck well up ice, has a good shot, very good skating ability and the upside to produce consistent point totals. A courageous little bugger for a player his size, he relies on excellent positioning in the defensive zone to earn his coach's trust.
Flaws: Is well below-average by National Hockey League standards in terms of his size (5-9, 185 pounds), which hinders his overall upside. Therefore, he must continue to add strength to prove his doubters wrong as a quality, big-minute defender at the highest level.
Career Potential: Diminutive big-minute defenseman with upside.
