Heed, a converted forward, has established himself as an effective puck-carrier, puck-mover, and puck-handler. He is also an above-average skater with solid speed. He will have to continue to develop both his skills and his attitude as a rearguard, although he has gained comfort in his position with each passing campaign.
Heed will start the 2013-14 season in the Swedish Elite League and would do well for himself to stay up this time. He has bounced around the Swedish relegation levels for several seasons and if he could stay up playing with the top level in Sweden could possibly prove his skill could translate to the AHL or NHL. He faces an uphill battle in a system loaded with offensive defenseman.
