Scouting Report
Assets: Is an excellent puck-handler. Uses his huge frame and butterfly style to full effect when filling the net. Very quick moving laterally to mirror shooters, he can make the spectacular save reacting to dekes. Displays a good glove hand.
Flaws: Needs to do a better job when challenging shooters. Goes into his butterfly a bit too quickly at times, and can also get caught out of position when out to handle the puck. Needs to keep developing his blocker side.
Career Potential: Big goaltender with upside.
