This was predictable. They've had lots of looks at him, but he's really a tweener.

He's not really big enough that he can be a shutdown guy, and he's not skilled enough to provide any meaningful offense. Decent but not great shot. Decent but not great skater.

I had hopes for him but I think it come down to a lack of hockey sense. Even in the couple games I saw this year (I watched him more the previous year), he would just get caught out of position or let his man go inexplicably too many times. Nice, hardworking kid but it really doesn't seem like the NHL is in his future.

When thje NHL upside is as a two-way 5/6/7 dman, it's really not worth the team using a contract on him now.

Mark Alt has taken over that space on the org chart and he's much bigger, skates better and has more potential.
