|Has tremendous shutdown ability, mainly due to a big frame, an aggressive attitude and physical toughness. He also skates very well and owns a good point shot. Displays a fair amount of offensive acumen, as well. Must become even stronger in order to maximize output at the highest level. Also needs to learn when to pick his spots better when lining up opponents for big hits (and play more in control). Lacks a little consistency.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Talented, all-around defenseman with upside.|
