Scouting Report
Assets:
Has excellent puck-moving skills and can jump-start the counter-attack effectively from the back end. Is capable of playing on either side of the ice and can log a lot of ice time.
Flaws:
Isn't very physical and somewhat undersized for the National Hockey League game, so he must prove capable of handling bigger forwards consistently at the highest level.
Career Potential:
Solid, mobile puck-moving defenseman with a little upside.
