Let's see how the Hockey's Future profile stacks up to what he does on the ice:
(I noticed he's listed at 195 on the profile, not 210)

Physical, but doesn't have the size to be an imposing presence. Average skater, average puck skills. Possesses a good, accurate shot from the point. Plays the PP in junior, but won't fill that role in pro.
Decent, well-rounded prospect. Lack of size or any dynamic skills will likely prevent him from being an impact/top-4 guy at the NHL level - upside is to be a decent depth/complementary defender. May not be big enough for his style to play well in pro and advance past the AHL level. Made a smooth transistion to the pro game in 2002-03.
