Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Has good size and sound puck skills. A fleet skater, he has the wheels needed to rush back into the play. Is at his best when he plays it simple, moving the puck out of danger.

Weaknesses: 

Doesn't make enough of a physical impact, despite a big frame. Is somewhat limited in terms of offensive upside.

Projection: 

Steady defenseman.
