Scouting Report
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.
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.
