Scouting Report
The son of longtime NHL defenseman Dave Manson plays the same position as dad but does it differently, especially when it comes to fighting. He is big and strong, can play a physical game while averaging 20 minutes per game. His offensive numbers have dropped off after his mid-20s but he remains a solid citizen along the blueline.
Long Range Potential: Solid shutdown defenseman (when healthy).
