Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Plays a very heady game and is mature beyond his years. Owns sound hockey sense and the ability to lead the rush in transition.

Weaknesses: 

Is not big, nor a very physical blueliner, so he must rely heavily on sound positioning and hockey smarts to get by at the pro level.
