Scouting Report
Assets:
A scoring machine from the back end, he is both incredibly mobile and athletic in general. Also boasts tremendous size, to go with his great skating ability. Was able to handle converting from wing to defense (a few times) flawlessly.
Flaws:
Can make a few too many mistakes with the puck from the blueline position and makes mental errors, in general. Could stand to use his physical gifts more to his advantage, especially adding more toughness to his game.
Career Potential:
Incredibly versatile and outstanding offensive defenseman.
