  • Big, rugged defenseman accepting his role protecting the younger prospect’s.
  • Creates havoc clogging the shooting lane. Paired up with Wideman on the third unit.
  • Physical resemblance of Eric Gryba in stature. Likes to join the offensive rush, effectively at times.
  • Needs to improve on his skating. Little rough around the edges in his own end with the puck.

Outlook: His fists led him into ten scraps throwing haymaker’s in many as a tenacious ‘heavy’, tough to play against defenseman. Should be a better player with untapped confidence brewing getting into every game this season, where last season it was sporadic at times,  in and out of the line up as a healthy scratch.
