Scouting Report
Had great hockey sense, plus a long reach to defend attacking forwards. Was efficient when playing the man. Led by example and always took pride in being a capable shutdown defender. Was also a great teammate.
After years of wear and tear, injuries finally caught up to him. He was also no longer able to log big minutes and play a shutdown role because of persistent back problems late in his career. Didn't produce big totals.
Career Potential:
Savvy, quality shutdown defenseman and leader.
