That's what he worked on last season. Ended up leading his team with +26 and was nominated for one of the OHL defensive awards for his defensive play. This is what Brock Otten said last season:
"Corrado has developed into a terrific two-way defenseman. His biggest asset is his skating ability and general mobility. He uses it to skate the puck out of pressure situations in his own end, and he uses it to his advantage defensively. His defensive game improved massively this year, to the point where I'd call him one of the better defensive players in the league. He's not incredibly large, but he's aggressive and does not back down from anyone. He'll lay you out on the way to the net, punish you in the corners, and throw a couple of cross checks to your back in front of the net. The only disappointing aspect of his game has been the relative lack of development in his offensive game. He has the puck carrying ability to create offensively, but he still seems a bit tentative to let loose. It seemed like this year he was really focusing on the defensive end. He definitely has offensive potential though."
