Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "His lack of offense concerns me, but I like the rest of his game. He's a great skater, defends well, and moves the puck." (Anonymous Scout, Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Strong two-way game, able to contribute at both ends of the ice. ... Able to win puck battles and make room for himself on the ice for outlets or plays out of the zone. Uses size well to win pucks and make room on the ice. Has size and strength to play defense with vision and feet to contribute offensively. Bottom-pairing NHL defenceman." (Greg Hickman, ISS Scout)

• "I don’t know why he wasn’t invited to play in the Under-18’s. He was better than some of the guys they took over there. You can't tell me that his speed wouldn’t have been a welcome addition on the big ice." (Anonymous Scout, Recrutes.ca)

• "A good-skating, steady, mobile defensemen that has a good first pass, is smart when carrying the puck up the ice, and is good at slowing the game down and making the right read. He has an active stick in the neutral zone or defensive zone. ... Good at anticipating where the puck is going to go in the defensive zone." (Justin Sproule, Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "I was not quite as shocked at his low point totals in his league play after watching him struggle through a game with several poor decisions." (Mark Edwards, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
