|Has size and the physical toughness teams love. Is a willing combatant and a solid team-first player. Can be fairly steady in the defensive zone when on top of his game. Does not have a lot of offensive ability, especially at the NHL level. Can be prone to too many mistakes when he has the puck on his stick. Takes bad penalties on occasion.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Physical depth defenseman.|
