Analysis: As one of the top recruited D-men out of high school, the native of Campbell River possesses solid, fundamental two-way skills as well as a very hard point shot. He has the height, but not the weight; he needs to fill out his frame before entering into the professional hockey level.  He saw limited ice-time as a freshman with Colorado College, but will be relied upon much more this season and should become a mainstay on the powerplay. If he improves each year, he could become a good 5th or 6th d-man in the future, with a special spot on the powerplay.
