DraftSite Scouting Report A fine all-around defensive prospect who displays all the qualities necessary to progress as an NHL defender. He is very mobile player who passes thread the needle on tight breakout passes. Smartly activates into the attack with explosion causing matchup problems for the opposition. Smart and gifted point man who effortlessly walks the blue line to open lanes on the PP. Excellent lateral mobility on dee. Closes down on the wall. He is going to need time and with improve gap control and hopefully add more aggression, using his big frame more. A member of his homeland’s team roster for the World Junior Under-20 at Christmas 2014. Might easily be the best ready to defend" defenseman in the class. He will make a seamless transission to the NHL quickly.
