Always impressed the couple of times I got to see him. He is the best skater in the system, I really mean that on par with Ferraro and Quine if not better. Disagree with the physical part, he very much has reminded me of Kronwall when I have seen him. He is physical enough in the zone, but he has the take guys out element and uses his skating to just absolutely destroy guys from time to time. You get caught napping and he can make sure you stay that way for the rest of the game. He does need to dial back the hip checks not only because he is pretty hit or miss, but because a lot of times when he comes close to missing he is going to get his face pounded in for them. In college nobody makes him answer, in the AHL he is going to get a goon gong show the first time he fails at it. But overall so much to like, reminds me a ton of one of my favorite players from his alma mater Bret Hedican.
