What People Are Saying:
  • The Hockey News: "Defensive defenseman brings bite; makes nice first pass."
  • Hockey Buzz: "a steady defensive defenseman who plays an intelligent positional game with a bit of physicality."
  • Future Considerations: "a gritty, hardworking defenseman...skates well and while he does not possess much offensive upside, he can move the puck efficiently."
  • Hockey Prospect: "steady game with smart defensive positioning and safe plays with the puck...his end comes first, but if he sees a sure-thing opportunity to provide a little extra, he can do it...has the potential to be an NHL defenseman based on his humble approach and intelligence on the ice."
