Highlights

1-time AHL Second All-Star Team 1

Father: Jay Ness
Ness is a puck-moving defenseman with natural offensive instincts. Has great skating and passing ability. Gets back on defense fast after joining the attack and has good hockey sense, too. However, his modest size can be a problem against bigger forwards in puck battles.
- Erik K. Piri, EP (2014)
