History

The physical defensive defenseman became a driving force on the Crimson blue line this season. The 6’2/225 lbs. native of Wilton, CT posted three points (all assists) in 32 appearances this season. Christian played much of the season alongside the 6’4/215 lbs. sophomore David MacDonald (SJ).

Talent Analysis
Christian is an ultra-physical defensive defenseman who combines enormous size and strength with great skating ability. He skates with fluid yet very powerful strides and moves remarkably well for a big man. Christian’s size and strength not only make him difficult to play against but also to have to great around. He is very solid positionally and is great in one-on-one situations. Christian is a tough competitor and has no problem finishing his checks. He possesses a very hard and heavy shot. While Christian can chip in a goal once in a while, offense isn’t one of his strongest characteristics.
