Note: Reports prior to Sept 2023 were originally graded out of ten, and also included additional categories that have been merged into the current categories.
This likely results in the overall ratings prior to 2023 being decreased in comparison to reports since Sept 2023.

For an `Apples to Apples` comparison between players, we recommend only comparing reports before, or after, Sept 2023.
Results will average out accordingly as more data is accumulated.

Position scouted: Left Defense
Age when scouted: 28
Projection: Third Pair
Trending: Up
AVG TOI (21:55) Being used in all situations. Primarily a 2-way/Transitional 'D' who's element is more on the offensive side of the ledger than the defensive. Equally comfortable distributing and shooting the puck. Skates well. Can attack off the rush and add an extra layer.
Bounce back season. Better execution and results. Defending is average. Not the kind of player you want on the ice in key defensive scenarios in playoffs. He adds value in other scenarios. One more year on his contract.
