Scouting Report
Assets:
Excels in one-on-one battles. Has a very active stick and long reach, which make him very effective in the shutdown role. Has good hockey sense. Can produce offensively.
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. Isn't a natural with the puck so his offense is limited.
Career Potential:
Veteran shutdown defenseman.
