Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Minnesota-Duluth commit doesn't make mistakes. Thinks the game well." (Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Very solid in his own zone on most shifts. Smart, reads/anticipates well. Has a good stick one-on-one and is tough to beat down low in his zone. Competes hard, blocks shots, and takes hits to make plays. Skating needs improvement. Lacks recovery speed and has wide strides." (Tim Zeches, ISS Scout)

• "Best defensive work is done along the wall challenging the puck carrier. Menacing and physical in one-on-one battles. Projects to become a stay-at-home defenseman who takes care of his own end first but also has the potential to move the puck with solid passes. Not the sexy pick, but a guy who can help stabilize a defensive corps." (Future Considerations)

• "An efficient puck-moving defenseman who makes safe reliable reads coming out of his own end. He isn’t going to drive offense, but can be relied upon to clear pucks and push the pace with quick, accurate reads. He has a strong lower body and a thick frame which allows him to win a lot of puck battles and protect the puck in tight areas." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Built like a fire hydrant, so his lower centre of gravity helps him when fighting for loose pucks along the walls or jockeying for position. ... Gives an honest effort in all zones, but gets himself in trouble with risky plays at times." (Red Line Report)
