Notes: 2013-14: Selected by Buffalo in the 1st round (16th overall) of the NHL Draft; Made NHL debut.

Assets: Has the great size NHL teams love, as well as a plethora of shutdown potential. His great reach helps thwart offensive opportunities against his team. Flaws: Is still somewhat raw in all facets of the game, so he needs to hone his skills. Needs to become a more intimidating physical force for the NHL. Career Potential: Mammoth project defenseman with big upside. Editorial supplied by 'The Sports Forecaster'
