This 6-3, 220-pound prospect can be a force of nature when he’s rolling in a game and fans have a lot to look forward to when he becomes an NHL veteran.

Playing four seasons plus for the Red Deer Rebels, this big blueliner managed to compile 134 points in 259 games in his WHL career. He had nothing left to prove. He was a very decorated player and he turned pro.

In 2016-17 he played for the Charlotte Checkers in the American Hockey League. In his first full season, he played 69 games and had 26 points. That was a great start. He also managed to play in five playoff games. He didn’t score but he got invaluable experience.

In his first 33 NHL games, he only has five points but he is holding his own. The Hurricanes are a playoff bubble team and now at the age of 21 he’s progressing nicely.

In his first NHL season, he has more hits and blocks than games played. More points will come as he gets more comfortable with the league. His worth is his defense and his toughness, but he’s likely to become a real fan favorite down the road. At 21 he’s just scratching the surface in regards to his talent.
