Scouting Report
Assets: Has excellent size and handles the puck extremely well. Is extremely quick and agile, challenges shooters, covers most of the net thanks to size and is a confident 'keeper when at his best. Has improved his conditionning level.
Flaws: Because he's so big, and because of his style, at times he can look a little slow in the crease area. He likes to play the angles, but can't forget to rely on mostly just that aspect. Can also at times drop to his knees too early.
Career Potential: Excellent workhorse goaltender.
