Scouting Report
Assets: Patient and calm in the crease, he mirrors shooters well and waits them out before making his move. Stays fairly high in the net, getting the most out of his good size to cover the upper half. Plays a somewhat hybrid style that can be tough for some opponents to read.
Flaws: Not a classic butterfly practitioner, he sometimes gets awkwardly caught in-between, leaving him open to five-hole shots. Is too patient at times, leaving him vulnerable to quick releases. Doesn't use his size enough to challenge and maximize angles.
Career Potential: Raw but talented goaltender with some upside.
