Scouting Report
Assets:
Had size, skating ability, a blast from the blueline and loads of intelligence. Was capable of shutting down the very best forwards in the NHL. Also provided leadership and was a great open-ice hitter.
Flaws:
Rarely played at 100 per-cent health, due to his warrior mentality, which at times hindered his performance. In fact, his career ended prematurely due to injury. Was an inconsistent offensive performer.
Career Potential:
Fragile but talented all-round defenseman, if healthy.
