Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Moves very well for a 6-5, 220-pound defender and owns both shutdown and all-around qualities. Is capable of logging big minutes and playing on either side of the ice. Can rush up ice with the puck.

Weaknesses: 

Doesn't use his huge frame enough to his advantage, which limits his effectiveness. Is somewhat timid in the offensive zone, too. Could stand to play more consistently in all facets of the game.

Projection: 

Big-minute defenseman with excellent size and skating ability.
