He definitely has the skill for the top 6 as long as he continues to develop, but if he doesn't he'd make a very nice scoring 3rd liner. He's completely different than Ferriero and doesn't seem to suffer from any of his problems, and I'm a huge defender of Ferriero. It all remains to be seen if this will translate to the next level.
It is one thing to be good defensively in college vs. the NHL.

Moreover, he is only what, 6 feet? How many defensive-specialists are that size? I agree that he could be a good tertiary scorer, but I would say that he is unlikely to crack a top-6 and likely not fit for a bottom-6 role. Again, judging from seeing him very few times, and his colelge statistics.

Perhaps a better comparison would be Jamie Mcginn, except that Mcginn had size.
