Highlights
1-time U20 WJC Silver Medal 1
1-time U18 WJC All-Star Team 1
1-time U18 WJC Best Defenseman 1

The skating base that informs much of his value is sound. He starts with a strong posture, pushing his knees over his toes, tilting his hips backwards, and settling comfortably into each forward stride, with a toe snap to mark each extension. He employs linear crossovers to accelerate with ease, and he just flies out there with a little runway. -EliteProspects 2021 NHL Draft Guide

A rather smooth skater who can occasionally rush the puck through the neutral zone and defends competently with his stick and positioning, EPRinkside.com 2021
