He's an all round defensemen. He is good in his own end, and he's solid offensively as well. I'd say he's good in all areas, but not great in any area. He has good size, skates well, will throw the body, has a decent shot.
As for weakness, he needs to be more physical in front of the net. This year he seems to have a lot of confidence in his shot as he has over 100 shots in 30 some games, not bad for a defensemen that isn't know for his offense. (although he was more of an offensive D pior to the NCAA)
Whats the chances if this guy making it to the nhl?
toough to say how he will progress at the next level (assuming he makes it to the next level) I would think he gets a shot in Hamilton at some point, but until then it's hard to say cause NCAA defensemen don't play in tight checking systems for the most part, so it's hard to guage how their skills will translate in a more systematic game.
