Scouting Report
Assets:
Can play a sound defensive game, log big minutes and also be used in a shutdown role. Moves the puck well out of the defensive zone. Has loads of hockey sense. Can also be used in an offensive role, if required.
Flaws:
Isn't a physical defenseman, which somewhat limits his effectiveness against big NHL forwards. Is also a limited contributor in the offensive zone and not a natural with the man advantage. Lacks ideal size.
Career Potential:
Savvy, veteran defenseman.
