|Has a huge frame and figures to play at well over 200 pounds at the highest level, which is what NHL scouts love. Owns a big point shot and an exemplary work ethic. Is willing to play a rugged style. Makes a solid first pass. Is not a great skater, and is somewhat raw and awkward, so he will need to improve his skating and footwork in order to maximize NHL output. Does not have high-end offensive upside. Can he put it all together?|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Big, gangly defenseman with upside.|
