Scouting Report

Assets:
Has great size (6-4, 219 pounds), a big shot, shutdown ability and some physicality to his game, so he can play an all-around game. Skates very well, produces good offensive numbers and can log big minutes, as well.
Flaws:
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.
Career Potential:
Big offensive defenseman with upside.
