He's a tank! A very quick-skating tank at that, who forechecks really well and likes to hit (what they said when he was drafted).

This guy with hands and a shot could be very useful on the Canucks.
I would take it with a grain of salt, but on the active roster it has him listed as 188cm and 99kg so he's up there.

Also, in mild disbelief I did a bit of a background search, and found his fb page, and there's a picture of him on the beach, and he's a built/beefy torso guy. Yeah I went there, I was curious


And yeah, I'm liking his odds of making the Canucks as a role player even more now, the 2011 draft is my favourite in some time.
