Scouting Report
Assets:
Excels in one-on-one battles. Has a very active stick and long reach, which make him very effective in a shutdown role. Has pretty good hockey sense. Has the requisite size and strength for the National Hockey League.
Flaws:
Could stand to utilize his 6-4, 207-pound frame more often in a physical capacity so as to keep opposing forwards more honest. Is not a natural with the puck so his offense is limited. Concussions are an issue.
Career Potential:
Veteran shutdown defenseman, when healthy.
