Assets: Skates very well and can provide plenty of offense from the back end. Despite a lack of size, he isn't afraid to mix it up with opposing forwards. Displays good instincts for the game.
Flaws: Will he be able to handle bigger forwards in front of his own net at the NHL level? The jury is still out. Also, he will need to prove he can quarterback the power play to enhance his pro prospects.
Career Potential: Offensive defenseman with upside.
