|An offensive, point-producing defenseman in Europe and at all lower levels, he is smooth with the puck on his stick and rather mobile. Moves the puck with aplomb and can be an asset on the power play. Lacks optimum size for the National Hockey League, so he could stand to add more bulk and get physically stronger. He must prove capable of handling bigger NHL forwards in front of his own net and in the corners in order to maximize output.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Quality depth offensive defenseman with a little upside.|
