Good sized defensive defenseman with improving skill. All around decent skater who works well away from the puck. Could show a little more patience working the puck up ice. Has an overall good temperament. Stays focused and doesn’t run himself ragged. Decent shot from the backend. Likes to line up forwards and deliver the big hit. A leader in his own end.
