Maybe needs a change of scenery
Has shown to have a good shot on many videos on youtube
Was drafted pretty high in a decent draft
Has done very well in the AHL (127 points in 225 games)
While not knowing how well defensively he plays, his offensive IQ seems to be a lot better than a lot of Buffalo fans call him out to have. He seems to score a lot of goals as a defenseman, he must have some IQ to score goals.
He has a 10% shooting percentage, which as a defenseman is not bad at all (pretty normal) 132 shots and 14 goals this season
6-1, 213 pounds, a reasonably sized D-man, a good comparison would probably be Weaver *size wise*
Many have had decent to impressive AHL careers but were unable to make it at the national level.

He has been passed on the depth chart year after year in Buffalo.

I hope he shows something with a fresh start with you guys.
