Scouting Report
Few defensemen are better at putting points on the score sheet. He is excellent at moving the puck and finding the open man in good scoring position, and also has the kind of shot that opposing defenses have to respect. Is not a real physical presence despite his size, but has improved his defensive play in recent years--enabling him to continue to play major minutes.
Long Range Potential: Elite offensive defenseman.
