Josh is an offensive defenceman who loves to jump into the play. Josh is a smooth transitional skater who also has good speed and acceleration, allowing him to jump into the offense while still maintaining a defensive presence. Coming out of his own zone Josh reads the ice well and makes very good outlet passes but also has the puck handling ability to weave his way into the offensive zone. Josh has a very accurate shot and when shooting from the blue line consistently get the puck to the net. Not only does Josh excel in the offensive zone but he’s a very good defender as well. He has good positioning down low and plays effectively in front of his net and in the corners, where he’s not afraid to mix it up physically.
