|Has very good offensive instincts and great mobility. Also owns the natural ability to move the puck quickly out of danger. Owns a powerful point shot. Has developed into an excellent defender, as well. Can make a few too many mistakes with the puck when he is a bit too overconfident, though he has improved a lot in that area. Lacks ideal size for the blueline position in the NHL (5-10, 180 pounds).|
