His strong skating and dynamic stride allow him to keep gaps tight and transition quickly. He can generate momentum in his stride quick and shows fluidity in all directions as well as a strong form. A strong defensive player, he is a guy who enjoys positional battles and often can gain leverage with his body position to control the play. Sometimes he wants to do too much and it can result in him missing coverage or reading a pass wrong. Overall, he gives all his effort in his own end and wants the puck on his stick. His ability to keep pace allows him to keep a stranglehold in the defensive zone and he is very aware of his surroundings on the ice and showcases the ability to read plays more effectively than previously seen. Even though he does have passive aspects to his game, he uses his stick and body to create turnovers. Offensively, he loves to jump into the rush, but prefers to play the safe route in keeping the play alive in the offensive zone. His passing ability is strong and he has the upside to see up ice to break the puck out. He does well controlling pucks at the point and opening shot lanes for his teammates. He’s a guy who will lay it on the line and stays engaged in the play, though there is room for improvement.
