A big defenseman for Don Mills, Brian Xiao will be looking to be a big part of Team Canada Red at the upcoming PSI All-Star Challenge. Xiao is a proper two-way defenseman, who is capable of starting the offense with an ever so crucial first pass out of the zone, while also having great defensive awareness as well. Xiao is a very respectful, compassionate, and responsible individual, making him someone that anyone would want in the room. His style of play best mimics that of former NHL superstar Erik Karlsson, which is naturally no small feat. This style allows Xiao to be a constant threat on the ice in all areas, while also making things extremely difficult for his opponents on the defensive end. With the All-Star Challenge approaching, Xiao will be heavily relied upon for his offensive and defensive games, which will be crucial in the teams push for a finals win.
