Scouting Report
Assets: Has a very long frame, which he uses to full effect in scrambling to get to pucks. Is aggressive challenging shooters, but also reacts well and doesn't give up on plays. Works hard to improve and shows some clutch ability.
Flaws: Despite great height he doesn't stand tall enough in the net; goes to his knees too early and is often caught off-balance and flopping. Can be a bit slow recovering laterally, and depends too much on athleticism and length.
Career Potential: Big, mobile depth goaltender with a little upside.
