Scouting Report
Assets: Owns superior puck-handling and clearing skills. Is extremely active in and out of the crease area. Has the confidence of a perennial all-star puck-stopper.
Flaws: Has battled an incredible string of injuries, which have destroyed his development. Was rushed to the NHL too quickly, so he is still quite unpolished. Is not reliable at all.
Career Potential: Incredibly fragile, yet talented goaltender.
