Scouting Report
Is a sensational skater (he is among the fastest defensemen in the NHL) and has the maneuverability to avoid opposing checkers. He has tremendous offensive instincts, can quarterback a power play with aplomb and is adept at joining the rush. Reads plays quickly, can play huge minutes and makes lots of good things happen for teammates. When he is on the ice, the puck spends a lot of time headed toward the opponent's net. Is becoming an impact player in all three zones. Scores goals better than most D-men.
Long Range Potential: Elite offensive defenseman.
