He appears to be a more offensively-capable version of Griffin Reinhart. Maybe even more aggresssive too based on his PIMs.
Technically nephew in law to DM (his Aunt married DM if I recall correctly). He does have an athletic pedigree no doubt through his parents regardless, but I don't see the upside. I don't think his offensive skills are as good as everyone thinks they are. I like the aggressive play, but I think that can also get overvalued.

I see him having a decently high floor, but I also see his ceiling as low. I don't think he ever becomes a top pairing defensemen. I see him topping out as a #4.

Just my opinion of course, but strictly on defensemen I would go bonkers if we passed on Pulock or Zadorov for him.
