|An offensive defenseman with outstanding vision, he passes the puck with aplomb and can be a very effective quarterback on the power play (at all levels). Plays with a lot of poise with the puck on his stick. Needs to become much stronger in order to survive the rigors of the National Hockey League, as well as to maximize output at the highest level. Could stand to improve his defensive-zone coverage a bit.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Talented offensive defenseman with upside.|
