Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

Corrente is a physical defenseman with an aggressive style. Has the ability to make big open-ice checks. However, he doesn't contribute much offensively and can get in penalty trouble if he doesn't watch himself.

- Erik K. Piri, EP

Strengths: 

Has shutdown appeal and a wealth of physical toughness. Can drop the gloves. Usually makes safe plays in his own end. Is a natural leader. Can also be used as a forward, if needed.

Weaknesses: 

Doesn't have natural offensive ability, so his point-producing upside is quite limited. Also needs to avoid piling up a surplus of bad penalties that could hurt his team.

Projection: 

Depth physical defenseman
