He is an offensive, jump up in the rush, type of d-man. His only drawback is his size - but he is tough. He was on the gold medal winning U-18 tourney last year.
I like him too but he will likely go pretty late. 6-9th round. He's really tiny at 5-10 and 157lbs. At least he's tough. If he grows 2 inches and puts on 30lbs (6'0'', 190lbs) he could have a chance in the NHL one day... but he'll still be small.

I wonder if he should think of converting to fwrd? Or maybe he doesn't mind the idea of a career in Europe.
