|Assets:||Has tremendous size, so he covers most of the net with his frame. Is technically sound and has enough character to overcome adversity. In brief stretches, he can get the job done.|
|Flaws:||Doesn't do a great job of recuperating his position whenever he's under intense pressure in the crease. Lacks consistency over the long haul, which limits his overall value.|
|Career Potential:||Veteran depth goaltender.|
