Scouting Report
One of the best defensemen in the NHL at making life miserable for opposing forwards and getting the puck moving the other way, he can kill penalties effectively and handle a top-pairing workload of 20-plus minutes on a nightly basis. Is not a significant point contributor, but his team will usually outscore the opponents when he is on the ice.
Long Range Potential: Top-level shutdown defenseman.
