Scouting Report

Is an impressive physical specimen who uses his size effectively. Can intimidate the opposition, fight from time to time and generally play an in-your-face style of defense. On occasion, he likes to jump up into the play.
Struggles against quick forwards as a general rule. Will at times take bad penalties that place his team in trouble. Doesn't have a ton of offensive ability and will get caught out of position due to his wandering ways.
Career Potential:
Physical, veteran depth defenseman.
