Scouting Report
Assets:
Is an excellent defender and shot-blocker, capable of playing a shutdown role. Also possesses a fairly big shot from the point and good size for the NHL game.
Flaws:
Does not use his good size enough to his advantage, and can be considered a bit too soft overall. Doesn't shoot the puck nearly enough, either. Is injury-prone.
Career Potential:
Veteran defensive defenseman, when healthy.
