Scouting Report
The big, strong defenseman is learning that the path to success in the NHL for a player at his skill level means keeping things simple (and not try to do more than he is capable of doing). He is not much of an offensive threat, but his willingness to play a solid, stay-at-home game makes him ideal as a partner for someone who wants to join the rush.
Long Range Potential: Complementary partner for an offensive defenseman.
