Scouting Report
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.
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.
