Scouting Report

Assets:
Logs big minutes along the blueline, and also provides leadership. Owns one of the hardest point shots in the NHL (when he gets the chance to let it go). Usually keeps the game simple from the back end. Can hit and even fight.
Flaws:
Can be beaten one on one, since he's only an average skater. His offensive production is inconsistent, as is his decision-making with and without the puck. Is somewhat in decline in terms of his overall level of play.
Career Potential:
Veteran big-minute defenseman.
