Scouting Report
Assets: Is very fluid, fast and athletic for a goalie with a 6-2 frame. Shows excellent skating and footwork, with superb lateral movement. Gets into his butterfly easily and recovers well.
Flaws: Goes down too quickly and easily, sometimes leaving himself hung out to dry on both dekes and high shots. Could stand to be a lot more active with his paddle, in general.
Career Potential: Talented goaltender with upside.
