He's a decent skater for his size, not fast like Hedman but there are very few at his size who can match his speed.
Based on how HF ranks us he'd be a 4.5 D

Really, I think he COULD be a basically what we had hoped Aulie would be (but isn't and doesn't look like he'll reach) - a guy that can be a #4 defender that you can use for ES/PK time and maybe PP once in a while. Maybe more, i'm sure depending on whos scouting him. The thing he has going for him is obviously his giant reach and smarts, and hes not a big risk taker. I wouldn't say its easy to look good at the NCAA level all the time, but he came close to doing it. Always seemed to be in the right place and makes good passes.
