|Assets:||Is gargantuan in the crease area at 6-8, 198 pounds, so he can intimidate opponents into thinking there are no holes to shoot at. Can be dominant when his positioning is pinpoint.|
|Flaws:||Predictably, he is so big that he isn't the quickest netminder around. Therefore, he must continue to work on his timing, lateral movement and general footwork between the pipes.|
|Career Potential:||Mammoth depth goaltender.|

Jason Missiaen to serve as NYR third stringer | 06/04/2014 7:34 PM
NewsJason Missiaen was called up to the New York Rangers ahead of the Stanley Cup Final and is currently third on the goaltending depth chart after Henrik Lundqvist and David LeNeveu.
ImpactThe Rangers' regular backup, Cam Talbot, is out with an injury, which means LeNeveu will dress as the backup for Game 1 in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Missiaen, a fourth round draft pick from 2008, has no NHL experience and it is highly unlikely he will get the chance to dress. Nonetheless, this is a pretty cool opportunity for the prospect, who went 2-11 for Hartford in the AHL this season with a 3.83 goals against average and .864 save percentage.
