Scouting Report
Assets: Appears unflappable in the crease area, even when he surrenders bad goals. Is a big-framed 'keeper who is focused and can cover a lot of net. Also boasts explosive reflexes. Has a wealth of experience.
Flaws: Can at times be a little shaky with the glove, and generally has a devil of a time holding onto pucks. Lacks consistency; he'll get out of position at times and needs to keep upgrading his rebound control.
Career Potential: Inconsistent but clutch goaltender.
