Highlights
1-time Hlinka Gretzky Cup Gold Medal 1
1-time U18 WJC Bronze Medal 1

A very strong, transitional two-way defender that excels in pressure situations and isn't afraid to make the most of his, at times excessive, amount of ice time. Possesses a very high level of hockey sense, exhibited through the way he can read plays and play his part in them like a quarterback. Shows excellent mobility and, while willing to join the rush and create offense, is simultaneously aware of the back-end situation and is quick to backcheck. All-in-all, a complete two-way defender who competes vigorously, and is out to prove, every time he is on the ice, that he can be depended upon in all situations. (Curtis Joe, EP 2015)
