A defender who needs to simplify his game. While he shows flashes of skill, his game is inconsistent and there are concerns about his game. His skating is clunky and awkward, and his backward skating needs drastic improvement. He seems to struggle with fluid movements, and he isn’t comfortable skating with the puck. His poor positioning and subpar backward skating allows opponents to free themselves behind him and he is at the cause of multiple odd man rushes/breakaways. The Canadian rearguard is also very passive on the puck-carrier, allowing opponents to control the disc smoothly on zone entries without pressuring them. He seems to have difficulties with his coordination, mobility, and puck control, often losing his handle on the disc and putting himself in tough position to complete outlets. As an offensive defenseman, he defends through the neutral zone with his focus set on recovering or intercepting the disc quickly. He loves to stay high to be in a position to snatch a pass or a loose puck and jump on the counterattack. He does possess very quick instincts and a great reaction speed to cut off and intercept passes. He flashes his solid vision in the offensive zone, and owns a decent slap and wrist shot that almost always find a way to get on net for potential rebounds. Aside from multiple red flags, he lacks a trait that makes him stand out.
