i havent seen him play in a year, but he grew up close to me, this is what i have seen from him. he plays his position very well, and hardly ever makes a mistake. he is a very smooth skater and smart player. hes not that big, so youd like more offense then he has provided in the past, but isnt a stay at home defenseman, more of a solid 2 way guy. the 89 group of usa defensemen is very strong, so that fact that he was picked in the first group of players selected by the ntdp staff shows he is a real talent. would probably be rated higher by scouts if he was a little bigger being that he isnt a purely offensive defenseman, but is a very skilled puck mover.
