Scouting Report
Assets: Has great size for the blueline position, plus the physicality to go with it (he loves to punish opponents). Also produced good offensive numbers at the junior level. Is right-handed, which also adds value.
Flaws: Needs to improve his defensive-zone coverage and become a steadier rearguard, in general. Must also avoid taking too many bad penalties that will hurt his team. Will not put up huge numbers in the NHL.
Career Potential: Big, solid defenseman with a little upside.
