Scouting Report
Assets: Has explosive skating ability, superior offensive instincts, great puckhandling skills and a lethal shot. Is very adept at playing the point on the power play. Competes well, initiates the attack and covers a lot of ice. Has stamina.
Flaws: Needs to continue adding more bulk, since he can struggle when opposed to the NHL's biggest forwards. Must tighten up his play without the puck and avoid some occasional bad decisions when he has it (and is pressured).
Career Potential: Quality, mobile big-minute defenseman.
