Came away pretty impressed with him tonight. Reminds me of Duncan Keith, almost to a tee.
Skates pretty well. Isn't overly physical, but can handle it when it comes.
Amazing vision. Great passer and sees guy's open that no one else does.
Great poise with the puck, especially on the PP. Great quarterback.
Good nose for the net as he likes to jump into the rush, or sneak down the back side on the PP to create holes and lanes for teammates.
An above average defender already and is only getting better. There were a few plays tonight where he was walked around by a Blades player, but that's going to happen sometimes with the younger blueliners.
But, the raw talent shows with this kid.
He won't make team Canada this go-round, but I would expect top 4 minutes on the team from him next year, he's that good.
