Matt Donovan is a defenseman with good skating and puck-handling ability, so he can rush the puck or jump up on a play. Owns a fairly accurate shot from the point, and good offensive vision. Donovan can play a physical game at times, too. Defensively, he could stand to be more a consistent presence.
