Assets: Owns a huge frame and plenty of nastiness to his rock-solid defensive game. Is naturally athletic and displays plenty of shutdown potential. Is also a willing pugilist if need be. Skates very well. Flaws: Is not a natural point-producing defenseman, so he will make his living on the defensive side of the puck. At times, he can get caught out of position when seeking out the massive body check. Career Potential: Talented shutdown defenseman with upside. Editorial supplied by 'The Sports Forecaster'
