Scouting Report
A right-handed, puck-moving defenseman, he skates well enough to also see time as a winger (if need be). Is somewhat of an analytics darling whose effectiveness is not reflected in his offensive numbers. Is not a physical presence on the blue line, but is solid in his own zone and effective at limiting opponents' opportunities. Is capable of handling major minutes in key situations.
Long Range Potential: Versatile, effective puck-moving defenseman.
