Scouting Report
Assets: Was usually poised and rarely got rattled after giving up bad goals. Had good agility and the cockiness needed to play between the pipes. Was always a very well-liked teammate and made an ideal backup goaltender.
Flaws: Always needed more meat on his bones, even after filling out (6-2, 173 pounds). Would go into prolonged slumps, which always hurt his ability to cement a starting gig in the National Hockey League. His demise came quickly.
Career Potential: Quality backup goaltender and good teammate.
