|Has the great size NHL teams love, as well as a plethora of shutdown ability. His great reach helps thwart offensive opportunities against his team. If fairly mobile for his size.|
|Is still somewhat raw in all facets of the game, so he needs to hone his skills. Needs to become a more intimidating physical force. Also needs more consistency.|
|Mammoth, inconsistent but talented defenseman with a little upside.|
