Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

Ranked a 3rd round pick by RLR in 2007. Compared to Kevin Bieksa. -- RedLine

Big stay-at-home defenseman; will be asked to provide leadership; has good size, but does not always use it; logs lots of ice time; does a nice job using stick to take away passing lanes; will be used on powerplay and penalty kill; has decent puck skills -- hockeycanada.ca

Ranked #32 European skater in 2009 draft

Strengths: 

great size, attitude, makes safe plays, good first pass and ice vision, loves to set up teammates, makes good checks with his stick, not afraid of blocking shots (seen alot of pk time), and very good wrist shot.

Weaknesses: 

lack of physical play, doesn't use his size effectively enough (though he really progressed during last two years and started to hit the body), so he may look some soft; has some tendency to giveaway the puck in own zone, though rarely; doesn't use wrist often enough even if he has good position to fire the puck he'll be looking for a teammates - perhaps some issues with confidence

Projection: 

2nd pair all-around two-way defensemen
