Scouting Report
Assets:
Was a great an asset on the power play. Had size, hockey sense and a wicked point shot. Made crisp, precise passes to get out of the defensive zone. Put up excellent numbers. Was a great PP QB.
Flaws:
Didn't use his body nearly enough, and could be guilty of lazy play on occasion. Because he saw a lot of ice time, and was getting on in years, he became more of an injury risk with time.
Career Potential:
Savvy, excellent offensive defenseman.
