Scouting Report
National Hockey League teams love his size, which makes him a physical presence in his own zone and a crease clearer. His long reach helps him break up plays. Consistency continues to be a major issue for him at the NHL level. At times he can look a bit lost on the ice, usually when he tries to do too much with the puck.
Long Range Potential: Mammoth, physical but inconsistent defenseman.
