Scouting Report
Assets: A huge defenseman with both size and a great stick, he is also strong enough to compete against big NHL opponents already. Also boasts pretty good hockey sense and some offensive upside.
Flaws: Does not have optimum skating ability, which may become an issue as he climbs the organizational ladder. Also, his long-range scoring upside is limited. Must focus on being a shutdown blueliner.
Career Potential: Big, shutdown defenseman with upside.
