Right-handed shooting defensive defenseman with good size. Strong defender who uses his size and stick well. Good penalty killer. Moves the puck well. Looking to make strides in the offensive end of the ice.
“He’s a big shutdown defenseman, makes a good first pass and thinks defense first. He moves the puck up, supports the play. He supports his defense partner really well in moving the puck up. He has a good stick, does a good job getting in the way. He’s a rangy player. He has really good size.” – Buddy Powers, Stars scout
