Scouting Report
Assets:
Has great size and can be a punishing hitter. Moves the disc well, is very mobile and efficient overall. Also displays flashes of offensive acumen. Is capable of logging huge minutes, if required.
Flaws:
Can make mistakes with the puck on his blade at the highest level. Isn't a natural power-play quarterback, either. Can get into trouble at the NHL level when he doesn't trust his instincts.
Career Potential:
Big, solid defenseman with a little upside.
