Highlights
1-time U20 WJC Gold Medal 1
2-time WHL (West) First All-Star Team 2
1-time WHL Top Defenseman (Bill Hunter Trophy) 1

A very large and muscular stay-at-home defenseman, Witt was an excellent leader. Loved the physical side of the game and blocking shots.
Was in complete lack of an offensive game. Took too many penalties. Wasn't very mobile. At times put himself out of position looking for big hits. (EP 2009)
