Scouting Report
Has incredible skating ability, a keen sense of when to join the rush, size and hockey smarts. A capable shutdown defender, he can log huge minutes. He's also a durable player.
Doesn't play enough of a physical game to dominate in that department, but that's never been his style of play. Lacks a big shot, but should do more offensively with his skill level.
Career Potential:
Mobile, big-minute veteran defenseman.
