Scouting Report
Assets: Has incredible skating ability, size and hockey smarts. A capable shutdown defender, he can log huge minutes and usually positions himself perfectly well on the ice.
Flaws: Does not play enough of a physical game to dominate in that department, but it has never been his style. Lacks a big shot and produces underwhelming offense.
Career Potential: Mobile, veteran defenseman.
