Scouting Report
The big (63), rangy defenseman has the kind of size teams look for on the blue line. He is capable of playing top-pairing minutes (20-plus a night) as the sidekick to an offensive partner, and is best when he keeps his game simple to limit his mistakes and maximize his value. He has a big enough shot that opponents cannot take him for granted.
Long Range Potential: Minute-munching, stay-at-home defenseman.
