Scouting Report
Is a good passer with excellent vision who can run a power play. Is quite poised with the puck on his stick. His defensive-zone coverage continues to be a problem. Needs to keep getting stronger, which should help his play in the defensive zone. Ideally, he should be paired with a defense-first partner.
Long Range Potential: Offensive depth defenseman.
