|A late-blooming talent, he had a quick growth spurt and is now a towering figure at 6'4". For that size, he skates exceptionally well (both straight ahead and laterally) and plays a fairly mobile game overall. Moves the puck well and is also a capable defender. Can play a physical brand of hockey and will also produce points (though he is not a natural offensive defenseman). His skating ability allows him to play on either side of the ice, which adds to his overall value. Could stand to add more bulk.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Rangy, mobile and versatile defenseman with some upside.|
