Scouting Report

Assets:
Has great timing in lining opponents up for huge hits--he's not big, but is tough and can intimidate in open ice. Skates very well and is usually in sound defensive position. Has offensive ability, as well. A good puckhandler and passer, he is an asset on the power play.
Flaws:
Can struggle when having to deal with big power forwards in front of the net. His lack of size (and big-hitting tendencies) can lead to injury. Is still somewhat inconsistent in terms of offensive production. His overall game is starting to decline somewhat.
Career Potential:
Excellent, veteran big-minute defenseman.
