He is an extremely skilled d man, with an elite hockey IQ and I think the sky is the limit for him. Beyond his hockey talents, are his great character, and relentless drive to be the best player he can be. I am extremely proud of him and am happy to play a part in his development and advancement to a great hockey program like Penn State, and hopefully into the professional ranks."
