Scouting Report

Assets:
Plays a safe, steady game from behind the blueline. A good skater, he has NHL size and has displayed the ability to produce points at lower levels.
Flaws:
Isn't a natural offensive threat in the NHL, and he's also not an overly physical rearguard. Needs to keep focusing on his defensive responsibilities.
Career Potential:
Depth defenseman.
