Happy to see it. 7th rounder in 2019, but looks like a great value find. 6'2 RHD who skates really smoothly and defends really well. Skates the puck up ice with confidence, and while he probably doesn't have much offensive upside as a pro, having Defensive Dmen who can help with breaking the puck out of the zone is a huge part of being an effective modern defender.

Don't know what upside he has, but I can easily see how a player with his tools can become an effective NHL defender. Actually had a pretty impressive start to his Sens tenure in 2019, as he was a real standout at the rookie showcase, and even opened training camp with Ottawa, going as far as playing a couple of Pre Season games as Thomas Chabot's D partner. Obviously weren't opportunities for things like that this season, but will be interesting to watch how his pro career starts. If he can carve an NHL role for himself, it would be found money for the Sens. Again, only a 7th round pick, but looks like a good one.

Voted yes because I have never seen this name before. Love to see him on a line with Angus Crookshank and Gunnarwolfe Fontaine. Add Odeen Tufto to that list.
