Big bodied defender who has worked himself into the top defensive role for the RoughRiders. Plays with great strength and grittiness, but there are signs of offensive upside as he has nice puck skills too. He plays smart and physical in his end, and seems to have quickly adjust to the high pace level of the USHL. Confident and can move the puck out of his end in transition and isn’t afraid to provide support by jumping into the rush. There simply isnt not a decent level of quick stop/start ability at . this juncture. What he still lacks is a quick first step, and needs to add overall mobility. This gets him in trouble in the tight spaces. Intriguing developmental player whose rising up the draft boards
