Scouting Report
Assets: Has an ideal body for the netminding position and an exemplary attitude. Loves the pressure of tending goal in big games. Is as cool as a cucumber when facing a ton of rubber, has excellent fundamentals and good tools such as an excellent catching hand.
Flaws: Faces the burden of having to live up to huge expectations after early success, which he has struggled to reach again. Stays too deep in his net at times, which hurts his reaction time. Injuries have become an issue for him as he's gotten older.
Career Potential: Excellent goaltender, when healthy.
