Scouting Reports:
“Two-way defender who excels more in a shutdown role, Salo is an intelligent defenseman who reads the play well and is capable of breaking up plays with his active stick and strong positioning; may never develop a high end offensive skill set, but is an excellent passer on the breakout.” – Brandon Holmes, Riding Pine Hockey

“A do-it-all type of rearguard…a guy the coach can rely upon in key situations…skates well with very strong balance and overall mobility…has impressive vision reading the forecheck and poise when pressured…excellent ability handling and distributing the puck…makes crisp breakout passes…sees the ice well and does not force pucks into bad situations…will rush the puck, but is more effective making the pass and then skating hard to follow up the play…plays with a physical side even though he is not overly large…his defensive play is constantly strong, utilizing positioning and his stick to disrupt his opponent…uses his frame to separate the attacker from the puck…his defensive anticipation is outstanding as he steps up to disrupt passes…has a heavy point shot that is a real weapon to score or deflect…upside of a stable top-four NHL defender.” – Future Considerations
