Scouting Report

Assets:
Had excellent lateral mobility. Could log a lot of ice time and also played a shutdown role, if required. Was a power-play asset due to a heavy shot from the point.
Flaws:
Injuries really hurt his career. Should have used his size more to keep forwards honest and was not nearly physical enough, overall. Was guilty of occasional brain cramps.
Career Potential:
Mobile, big-minute defenseman with injury issues.
