Draft History
Drafted in 2016 NHL Draft: 1st Round, 13th Overall Pick by Carolina Carolina
Additional Information One of the youngest players in the class. Might be the best puck distributor in the class of defenseman. Coupled with his nice long skating stride and great edging, he can gain separation with stops and starts, but alway thinking far ahead with where he is making a play with the puck. His great passing gets him out of trouble in his own end. Sees a lane open and gets the puck to his man.
Makes some excellent cross-ice breakout passes. Pins/seals well on the wall in his end, and his using his physicality more. Has a great feel while acting as a QB on the attack and will hit a teammate with a pass and them instantly gets open to get it back. His stickhandling should get better and his shot can get stronger, but he projects as an attacking defenseman and possible the best puck-carrying defenseman in the class.
