Scouting Report
Assets:
Was a huge presence and displayed terrific defensive instincts and leadership. Possessed a decent shot from the point. Loved the challenge of shutting opponents down, and would use physicality to get the job done.
Flaws:
Offensively, he was pretty much limited to his shot and could get into trouble when trying to do too much with the puck on his stick. Was a little inconsistent in the hitting department. Injuries were a major issue here.
Career Potential:
Savvy, quality shutdown defenseman and leader, when healthy.
