Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "He has good size, and he's a good skater, but he needs to defend better and with more commitment. He sometimes seems to wait for the play to die instad of ending the play from the offensive team." (Anonymous Scout, Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Has continued to improve all season long. Average sized right defenseman who plays top pair, top PP, and PK. Excellent puck-mover, and also has the abilityto carry the puck up ice and beat players one-on-one." (Phil Myre, ISS Scout)

• "He’s the best CHL defenceman for me, and it’s not even a debate. He’s really smart and moves the puck well. He’s always pretty good when I see him. He just doesn’t make a lot of mistakes. He distributes well on the power play, and he defends well. I think he’ll fill a top-four role in the NHL." (Anonymous Scout, Recrutes.ca)

• "He’s great, I like him. Points are points, and he has a lot of them. He makes great plays in the offensive zone. ... I’d like his skating to be better, too, but I think it’s good enough." (Anonymous NHL Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Plays with confidence. Doesn't panic under pressure -- patient and waits for options to develop. Quick to the puck on dump-ins, and makes good first passes for a quick transition game. Has good size and four-way mobility but is not strong on his skates yet. Always willing to fill lanes and jump into the rush, showing good instincts on when to go." (Red Line Report)
