Almost never hits. With that being said, he is actually pretty solidly built (officially measured at 6'0.5" and 200 lbs at the draft combine), he's strong on the puck, he'll use his body to protect the puck, and he's loves going into traffic/danger areas. Definitely not soft offensively, but defensively he plays a finesse game, doesn't really go for hits at all. I've also seen him get blown up by forecheckers quite a number of times, he does seem to be someone that the opposition targets, though that's probably as much about wanting to take a top player off his game as it is him being an easy target.
