Scouting Report
Assets:
Brings a nice combination of size and speed to the rink. Works hard and is effective on the penalty kill. Plays a safe, mature and steady brand of defense. His big point shot can be a weapon on the power play. Moves the puck efficiently out of danger.
Flaws:
Doesn't shy away from the physical game, but he isn't a highly aggressive player defensively (despite excellent size) either. He is strong, but could stand to add more aggression to his game. Was somewhat injury-prone in the early part of his NHL career.
Career Potential:
Solid veteran defenseman.
