Draft History
Drafted in 2016 NHL Draft: 2nd Round, 51st Overall Pick by Los Angeles Los Angeles
DraftSite Scouting Report Poised puck hander with good vision, hockey sense, and offensive instincts. A strong transition player who has excellent four direction mobility and elite straight ahead acceleration. Displays good composure and is solid in his end at the junior level and stays home until he is sure he can join in on the attack. His feet aid not only his gap control, but let him burst in and disrupt their entrances. Gets his stick out and breaks up the passing lanes in opposition attacks. He is a good outlet passer in transition, able to get out of tight spaces and can jump up and join the attack and tear through the opposition neutral zone positioning. Terrific one timer, and a no-look pass/shot that is never telegraphed. Excellent touch passer and he can barrel across the blue line, fake a shot, and glide in closer for an even better one. Can get caught down low when he activates, but I can’t think of any NHL club that will have concerns about his size or long range upside.

User Scouting Reports

A smooth skating defenseman who plays the game at his own pace: fast and furious. Works hard every shift and earns every minute of ice time. The most noticeable part of his game is in the offensive zone. Very crafty player who can rip his shots home or make that extra pass to find space and time. Naturally fluid skater with an impressive top speed. High, high potential as an offensive defenceman.
