Scouting Report
Assets: Has a massive frame (6-5), so his shutdown upside is rather huge. Moves the puck well and is rather mobile for his size. Can also put up decent numbers at lower levels.
Flaws: Needs to add more bulk in order to maximize his shutdown ability at the National Hockey League level. Also, his offensive production will be limited in the NHL.
Career Potential: Huge, talented shutdown defenseman with upside.
