Assets: Has impressive size and plenty of shutdown upside. Moves the puck well but excels in defensive situations. Can log a lot of ice time, which adds to his overall value. Is a very good skater, too. Flaws: Doesn't have high-end offensive instincts, so he won't likely be a major point producer in the pro ranks. Also, he may need to step up his physical game in order to maximize his shutdown upside. Career Potential: Mobile shutdown defenseman with some upside. Editorial supplied by 'The Sports Forecaster'
