|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.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Mammoth, inconsistent but talented defenseman with a little upside.|
