Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Skates very well and is usually in good position. Makes a very good first pass out of his own end. Has solid offensive instincts. Can jump up into the play well.

Weaknesses: 

Isn't as effective in physical contests as he is when the game is more passive. Can occasionally make a critical blunder in the defensive zone when pressured. Lacks consistency.

Projection: 

Mobile big-minute defenseman.
