Scouting Report
An excellent offensive defenseman at lower levels, he skates well and can move the puck out of danger quickly. Can also take on a leadership role at lower levels.
Lacks ideal size for the National Hockey League game, so he can struggle in physical contests (and with bigger forwards in front of his own net). Lacks consistency.
Career Potential:
Journeyman depth defenseman.
