Watched him play quite a few times these season. After the world juniors and CHL games, it's probably 10-15 games of his. He's a really strong defender, it's clearly evident when you watch him. He's still sort of raw, but he's good massive potential there. For a big man, he's actually a really strong and fluid skater. His stride isn't choppy, and even though he isn't exactly fast his size combined with strong skating ability allows him to move pretty quickly.
Offensively he didn't have many opportunities in Niagara as they were giving Hamilton all of them. I think he can develop into a 15 goal 50 point guy if everything works out fine, but it's probably better to expect around 10 goals 20 assists a season on average while getting excellent defense out of him.
He'll be a good one, with a strong training camp he could challenge for the last defensemen spot.
