Scouting Report
An explosive skater with good puck-moving skills and rushing ability, he is an aggressive defenseman and a fiery competitor. While not an elite offensive D-man, he will get his share of points. Can be guilty of being overly aggressive at times, so he may need to be reeled in from time to time. Also, he lacks optimum size for the blueline position at the NHL level, especially for the physical way he likes to play the game.
Long Range Potential: Aggressive, all-around defenseman with upside.
