Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "The size, the physicality, and the shot are all very intimidating." (Hockey News 2017 Draft Preview)

• "There was so much hype that people started to nitpick. But he's an elite skater, he's got a bomb shot, and he's already 6-foot-3. He certainly looks like an NHL defenseman." (McKeen's 2017 Draft Preview

• "He has legitimate NHL size/skating ratio and also hits the scoresheet due to his heavy point shot. Scouts will be hoping to see more competitiveness and better decision-making." (Recrutes.ca 2017 Draft Guide)

• "Many natural tools. He can sometimes force the play, and the offensive domination from the back end has slowed down. ... Still flying high on the draft radar with new opportunity to fully shine again in his draft year." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
