An imposing figure to match up against, this blueliner has seen improvement in many areas of his game over the last year. His stride and edge work has improved greatly, and he is efficient in his every move along the ice. Glide and footwork allow for a level of mobility and has increased the range of his game where he can turnover pucks with his physical edge. His skating is enviable, given his size and mobility. Smooth-skating defenders with size are hard to come by and he’s got both going for him. Stays very tight to the play both offensively and defensively. He also uses his reach to disrupt the opposition and get in their face before they are able to establish a play. Solid man-on-man coverage. In the defensive zone. Could steel his focus and commitment to plays and keep his head on a swivel. Effective at getting into the pocket and shows craft in getting the puck to open lanes. Passes with a calmness and always seems to be one step ahead of the play.  Vicious and unforgiving when on the check, he makes things hard for his opponents no matter where he is on the ice. Stick positioning could be a little more effective. Still, a solid two-way player and his work in the offensive zone is a bonus to his defensive game.
