Highlights
2-time U20 WJC Gold Medal 2
2-time WHL Champion 2

A mobile defenseman with good all-round skills. Offensive-minded, excellent skater. Gives a solid first pass and has a good shot. Useful in all on-ice situations. Fairly small but still physically capable of winning battles. (Matias Strozyk, 2012)

Twin Brother: Ryan Russell
