Yes, those types of "hands" plays made him a pretty high Bantam Draft pick a few years back. Big guy. Edgy. Throw him into the mix as a new element alongside Foligno, Kassian. Could be fun to watch.

Chatty too from what I recall of Prospect Camp. They might have something there, if the hip issue that had him slide through his first eligible draft is long gone. Good hands and can police? Yes. Yes, please.
