Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Slightly above-average size defenseman. Active in the offensive end -- at times too active. Good hands and shot. Shot from point is good and gets on net. Transition game is good with nice outlets. Struggles against players with size down low. Tools to be a go-to defenseman at this level (QMJHL) with upside to play past this level." (Ben Gallant, ISS Scout)

• "His shot is his No. 1 weapon offensively. ...  He’s an OK puck-mover on the power play, but he really excels at firing pucks on net, because his one-timer is so excellent. He keeps his game simple and makes simple outlet passes to his forwards. However, he can get in trouble when pressured to make a play by the forecheck." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
