Scouting Report
The mobile defenseman continues to hold down an NHL job by being able to step into the lineup at a moment's notice and not show any signs of rust (even after being out of the lineup for long periods of time). He generally does not try to do more than he is capable of and is at his best in a stay-at-home defenseman role. His lack of size (and overall talent) can be a hindrance at times.
Long Range Potential: Depth defenseman.
