A mobile defender who possesses a massive frame and has the potential to add to his frame over the next couple of years. As a bigger player, he might surprise some with how mobile he is. He is light on his feet and has solid edgework allowing him to turn on a dime, adding to that he has above-average speed making him a threat in transition. He has the confidence to take the puck up and down the ice and contribute to his team’s transitional attack. He doesn’t crack under the pressure of the opposing forecheck, showing calmness and poise with his decision making. Biakabutuka can get careless with the puck, at times allowing his confidence to get the better of him. He has good vision but he attempts to make passes through tighter lanes despite there being a simpler outlet available to him. He has the raw physical tools that will appeal to teams, despite going through the draft once already he should have a decent chance at getting picked up this year especially given the lack of views on some other draft eligible players this year. If he can round out his all-around game, and continue to grow his offensive game he can find a way to contribute if a team takes a chance on him this year.
