2016-17 Season Stats
|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.|
|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.|
|Veteran shutdown defenseman.|
