Scouting Report
Has a massive frame (6-6), so his shutdown upside is rather huge. Moves the puck well and is rather mobile for his size. Can also put up decent numbers at lower levels. Needs to add more bulk in order to maximize his shutdown ability at the National Hockey League level. Also, his offensive production will be limited in the NHL.
Long Range Potential: Huge defenseman with some upside.
