Scouting Report
Assets: Is an excellent puck-handling goaltender. Uses his huge frame and butterfly style to full effect when filling the net. Very quick moving laterally, 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, too.
Career Potential: Big, talented goaltender with a little upside.
