Scouting Report
Assets: Is incredibly mobile and quite offensive-minded from the back end. At 6-2, he owns a fairly projectable frame. Can run a power play and is aggressive by nature.
Flaws: Will need to add significant bulk to maximize output in the pros. Must also continue to work on his defensive-zone coverage and play without the puck.
Career Potential: Talented defenseman with upside.
