Bio

2004-05

  • BCHL (Coastal) Best Defenseman

Scouting Report

Strengths: 

His big point shot can be a major weapon on the power play. Moves the puck efficiently out of danger. Brings a nice combination of size and speed to the rink. Works hard and is effective on the penalty kill. Plays a safe, mature and steady brand of defense.

Weaknesses: 

Doesn't shy away from the physical game, but he isn't a highly aggressive player defensively--despite excellent size--either. He's strong, but needs to continue adding some more power to his game. Has been somewhat injury-prone in the past.

Projection: 

Solid puck-moving defenseman with a big shot.
