Scouting Report
Assets:
Did not panic, could log big minutes and was a low-maintenance defender. Was a good skater and could move the puck quickly out of danger. Was also positionally sound, mobile and good in the transition game.
Flaws:
Did not always handle big NHL forwards very well, nor did he use his frame effectively enough. Had a tendency to avoid contact, unless absolutely necessary. Could be a bit hesitant in the attacking zone.
Career Potential:
Quality, savvy defenseman.
