Talent Analysis
Alen is a defenceman who plays with some intensity and grit and also has lots of offensive potential. He has a hard shot and great size.

Needs to use his size more and get used to the speed of pro hockey

Future
Is currently playing in Finland and is not expected to return to North America at any point.
