Powered By
The Pro Hockey Group
Note: Reports prior to Sept 2023 were originally graded out of ten, and also included additional categories that have been merged into the current categories.
This likely results in the overall ratings prior to 2023 being decreased in comparison to reports since Sept 2023.

For an `Apples to Apples` comparison between players, we recommend only comparing reports before, or after, Sept 2023.
Results will average out accordingly as more data is accumulated.

Starting his first full season at the pro level after a cup of coffee with the Senators at the end of his college season in (22/23)
Big body. Moves well. Logged a ton of ice at the college level. Pushes back physically. Uses his long reach to keep opponents to the perimeter. Has shown willingness to get in the shooting lanes to block shots. The kind of defenceman who leans 'Defensive D'. He's at his best when he keeps things simple with the puck to avoid turnovers. Low risk is best. Has time on his side. Still developing.

Projection: Third Pair
Trending: Up
In his final ten segment to end the (22/23) season at North Dakota he produced (2g-2a), was deployed in all situations, matched up versus top six opponents, and averaged between (20:00 - 26:00) TOI. Plays to his identity. Big body with physical push back and long reach. Good skater for his stature. Gets in the shooting lanes. Blocks shots. Length and size keeps opponents to the perimeter effectively. Gaps up. Leans 2-way 'D' at the pro level with a mix of 'defensive D'. Simple is best, overall, with the puck. At times shows deception on the offensive blue line / making plays and directing pucks on net from range. NHL (5D) / Potential (4D
