Scouting Report
Assets:
Has plenty of offensive capability, including the skills to play the point on the power play, as well as a howitzer of a shot. Is aggressive by nature; he'll drop the mitts and defend his mates. Skates well and is at his best in an up-tempo system.
Flaws:
Lacks discipline as a defender, including his positioning, decision-making and over-aggressiveness at times. Would be a more valuable defenseman if he played a more controlled game. Injuries can be a major issue for him. Is also in decline.
Career Potential:
Veteran defenseman in decline, when healthy.
