Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Good-skating defenseman that loves to get involved offensively and won't hesitate when rushing the puck from his end zone. He has good feet and is unafraid to skate out of his zone with the puck and lead the rush. Thanks to his good footwork, he's able to escape the pressure from the forecheck. He has a good passing game, too. His passes are accurate and crisp, and he moves the puck quickly out of his zone. His lack of size could hurt him in the future." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
