Scouting Report
Assets: Owns a big frame, which he uses effectively to cover a lot of net. Has fast reflexes, a good glove hand and he moves well in his crease. Displays the calm demeanor required to thrive between the pipes in the NHL.
Flaws: Has occasional problems with his technique and positioning, which reduces his overall effectiveness as a puck-stopper. Isn't great at communicating with his defenders. Isn't great when handling the puck himself.
Career Potential: Solid goaltender with some upside.
