Didn't do a good job in the fight at all. One of his turnovers led to a goal. Clearly not NHL-ready. He's looked like a third pairing AHL defenseman in his first game.

Granted he's still adjusting and other players all started out looking worse than they really are because they are nervous and apprehensive. Let's see how he looking in the next few weeks.
