|Assets:||Has great size for the goaltending position (6-3, 204), so he covers a ton of net naturally. Can make spectacular saves look routine. His legs are strong, so his push from side to side is excellent.|
|Flaws:||Needs to do a better job of battling through traffic to see the puck, and he generally needs to become more accustomed to the North American game, in order to maximize his NHL potential.|
|Career Potential:||Talented goaltender with good upside.|

Lightning want G Vasilevski to play in N.A. | 05/08/2013 10:22 AM
NewsTampa Bay Lightning director of scouting Al Murray is hoping that prospect goalie Andrei Vasilevski plays in North America next season.
ImpactHe has one year left on his contract with Ufa of the KHL but his deal has a buy-out clause, according to Murray. If he doesn't play overseas then he could skate for Mississauga in the OHL, since they own his junior rights, or with Syracuse in the AHL. Vasilevski was the 19th overall pick in the 2012 draft.
