(D): DOB: 4/05/96. 5’11, 182 lbs. Shoots right. Average sized rearguard with a gritty bite. Fluid north/south skater with serviceable agility. Needs to develop more lateral strength and quickness. Extremely effective when playing physical and keeping his game simple. Decent hands and vision. Had a hard time here giving or receiving passes, let alone working the puck. Was prone to give aways with the puck when under pressure and was not very strong on his stick. For some reason he stopped moving his feet when defending and started lunging and reaching with his stick, which left him stationary, vulnerable and a non-factor in the play. Is a raw project with good skating ability, physical upside and limited, yet useful offensive potential. Is best served as a physical, support defenseman that is tough in his own zone and that can pitch in offensively from the point.
