Scouting Report
Assets: Has very good offensive ability and great skating speed. Can make an impact as a power-play quarterback. Is good under pressure, and he always wants the puck.
Flaws: Lacks defensive polish, which somewhat limits his overall NHL value. Also lacks ideal size and strength to win one-on-one battles regularly in the professional ranks.
Career Potential: Offensive defenseman with a little upside.
