Scouting Report
Assets: Has a huge frame and figures to play at well over 200 pounds at the highest level, which is what NHL scouts love. Owns a big point shot and an exemplary work ethic. Is willing to play a rugged style. Makes a solid first pass.
Flaws: Is not a great skater, and is somewhat raw and awkward, so he will need to improve his skating and footwork in order to maximize NHL output. Does not have high-end offensive upside. Can he put it all together?
Career Potential: Big, gangly defenseman with upside.
