Scouting Report

Excels in defensive situations. Is a pretty good skater and generally makes solid outlet passes. Also has a fairly good shot that can be somewhat effective on the power play, though we hardly see him there nowadays.
Is not a natural puck handler, so he's not power-play quarterback material. Doesn't often use his physicality to intimidate opponents, which lessens his ability to dominate smaller forwards. Injuries are an issue now.
Career Potential:
Veteran defenseman in decline, if healthy.
