Scouting Report
Still skates well, even though he is on the far side of 30. He can rush the puck and has some offensive skills, but is mostly a physical presence in his own zone who will stand up for his teammates when needed. He has to make sure he picks his spots well when he steps up to make a hit so he does not lose his positioning. Has been effective whenever used as a winger at the NHL level.
Long Range Potential: Extremely versatile depth defenseman.
