|Is a quality asset in the offensive zone. Skates well due to an effortless stride. Has offensive ability, likes to join the attack and can quarterback a power play. Owns a projectable 6-2 frame. Makes a lot of bad mistakes with the puck, so he must clean things up defensively. Must also become a little more assertive in his decision-making, as well as keep his intensity level on high.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Mobile, offensive defenseman with defensive issues.|
