One thing that stands out when I watch Kichton is that he's not extremely fast, nor large...merely "good" in both categories and, for all those goal scoring numbers, his shot isn't fast. It's more deceptive than it actually can burn the goalie, which I'm not sure translates well for a defender in the NHL.
That's just it imo. When you watch him, nothing really jumps out at you. He's just a decent in all aspects, but not really master of any
