Scouting Report
The 2015 first-round pick (No. 29) continues to struggle to earn a regular job in the NHL as he heads into what should be the prime of his career. Has tremendous size and a big point shot, but he has never been a great skater and has yet to show the skills and physical play he will need to prove capable of being an impact NHL defenseman.
Long Range Potential: Big, raw defenseman.
