Height: 6'1"
Weight: 200 lbs
Position: Defense
Shoots: Left
Last Team: Cretin-Derham (US High School - MN)

Central Scouting Report: A skilled offensive defenseman with the skill to rush the puck... has good first step quickness and makes quick accurate passes in the defense zone... has a good shot from the point... strong along the boards as well as one-on-one in the corners... has the ability to dominate a game, but needs to play to his level every night... his offensive style sometimes leads to risky decisions.

2006-07 Season: Had 10-23-33 in 23 games this past season with Cretin-Derham... named Minnesota's "Mr. Hockey" in 2007, becoming the first Dretin-Derham Hall player to win the award... selected to participate in the Under-18 World Championships with the U.S. U-18 Team in 2007.

What they're saying:
"No. 1, he has great skating ability and great balance. He was the best skater on the ice in every game we played this year. He covers a lot ground with good lateral movement. And he has an offensive touch to him. A pretty well-rounded defenseman." –  Jim O'Neill - Cretin-Derham Head Coach (Dean Spiros - StarTribune.com from 6-19-07)
