Scouting Report
Is at his best with the puck on his stick. He is a silky smooth skater who can maneuver around opponents or blow past them. Has excellent hockey sense and can be an excellent power-play quarterback, which helps his offensive numbers. Uses his stick well in the defensive zone, but a serious lack of size means he can be bumped off the puck at times. Is best utilized with a more physical defensive partner. Has room to grow as he enters his prime.
Long Range Potential: Excellent puck-moving defenseman.
