|Owns a huge frame and plenty of nastiness to his rock-solid defensive game. Is naturally athletic and displays plenty of shutdown prowess. Is also a willing pugilist, if need be. Skates very well. Is improving in terms of point production, and will not hurt his team if used on the power play. At times, he can get caught out of position (especially when seeking out a massive body check).|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Talented, all-around defenseman with some upside.|
