Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "A defenseman that does a good job at both ends of the ice, and there’s still some untapped offensive potential. We could see a breakthrough with him next season. He’s not a flashy defenseman, but has some good smarts and is effective. ... He’s mature physically, and solid along the boards. He makes a good first pass, is a good puck distributor from the point, and has a big shot from the blueline. His decision-making will need to be more consistent if he wants to continue to improve his offensive game." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Not a big banger, but makes others pay the price. Strong puck-movement skills; sees the ice well and clears the zone efficiently with crisp outlets. Gets the puck to the right spots at the right times. Solid mobility in all directions, makes good decisions with and without the puck. Not the flashiest prospect, but solid and steady night in a night out." (Red Line Report)
