NHL Central Scouting's Chris Edwards
He's a really mobile defenseman. He needs to get stronger -- he's a little bit on the lighter side right now, but he has willingness to battle and he's very competitive. He jumps up into the rush well in a support role and has good puck skills. He needs to be a little more consistent through 60 minutes, but he has a good upside, with his skating and mobility being his biggest assets.
Shawn is a highly skilled defenseman who is maturing steadily both physically and mentally. He also possesses an outstanding skating ability.
