don't get me wrong. Not complaining.

He's had a very good college career.

But the weight for a defenceman is concerning.

165 on a player that is 5'8"? I can see that.

165 on a kid that is six foot? At 24 years old there's not much growing left other than bulking up and more than likely slowing down.

Hope he does well, but he is going to have to real careful along the walls and behind the nets.
