He makes a great first pass, can make plays and has a really good shot from the point. He is prone to making the odd turnover in his own zone with the puck especially when there is an agressive forechecker(s), but overall, what sets him apart is his smarts with and without the puck.

Finn is a two-way defenceman. He plays on the number one penalty kill and his ability to make plays along with his big shot from the point allows him to be a mainstay on the powerplay.

BTW, the number of goals he has should tell you just how good his shot is.

I;m not great at comparing players to NHL, but if I had to, I'd say right now he reminds me of James Wisniewski.
I'd say one more year of juniour and then one or two years in the AHL would do wonders for a player who has already proven to be really reliable on the ice.
