Scouting Report
Assets:
Has the ability to rack up points on the power play because of a huge point shot. Makes a crisp first pass out of the defensive zone and joins the rush with aplomb. Can also play wing. Is very heady on offense for the NHL level.
Flaws:
It's a struggle for him to receive regular ice time as a defenseman because he turns the puck over a lot and isn't great in defensive-zone coverage. At 5-9, 190 pounds, he'll always have trouble handling big NHL forwards.
Career Potential:
Versatile power-play specialist with a big point shot.
