|Has excellent size (6-4, 203 pounds), a big shot, shutdown ability and some physicality to his game, so he can be an all-around defender. Skates very well, produces good offensive numbers and can log big minutes. Needs to improve his overall play without the puck and defensive-zone coverage in order to become an elite, all-round defender at the NHL level. Must also keep things simpler, since he can overplay the puck.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Big, all-around defenseman with good upside.|
