2016-17 Season Stats
|Is built like an NFL linebacker, which can be an intimidating sight for opponents. Skates well for a man his size and owns terrific offensive savvy and a heavy shot. Can log big minutes on defense, or play the role of power forward up front. When he's on, he makes a huge impact in a game.|
|Can get caught at times because of a lack of first-step quickness. Also, he could stand to play with more consistency game in and game out. Moving back and forth between defense and wing has not always been the smoothest transition. Has battled off-ice issues, too.|
|Unique offensive defenseman.|
